IntroA ... A7 ... D ... Dm ... A ... E7 ... A ... A ...
VerseA 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
RefrainA 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

Here's a list of the 173 songs I've added to the site since December 2012. Each song was added by me personally.
Songs are grouped by the year they were released.
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.
