Lyrics

Intro

A ... A7 ... D ... Dm ... A ... E7 ... A ... A ...

Verse

A A7 D Dm Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling A E E7 From glen to glen, and down the mountainside A A7 D Dm The summer's gone, and all the roses falling A E7 A It's you, it's you must go and I must bide

Refrain

A D A F#m But come ye back when summer's in the meadow A D E E7 Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow A D A F#m I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow A E7 A Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so But if you come, and all the flowers are falling And I am dead, as dead I may well be You'll come and find the place where I am laying And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me And I will know, though soft you tread above me And then my grave, will richer sweeter be And you'll bend down and tell me that you love me And I will rest in peace until you come to me

About

My name is David Potsiadlo, and I created Songnotes to share my collection of guitar tabs, chords, and lyrics for my favorite songs.

Since I started playing guitar over 10 years ago, I've often been frustrated by the preponderance of mediocre and incomplete song tabs littered across the internet. To combat this, I started keeping my own collection of notes for each song I learn -- always taking the extra time to make sure accuracy and completeness are never compromised. Years later, my collection grew to the point where I knew I had to share it online with fellow aspiring musicians.

In December 2012, I began designing & developing a website that became Songnotes. Here, I share my personal collection of hand-crafted music notation with all those online. I hope you enjoy.
