Danny Boy je pjesma koju je godine 1910. napisao engleski advokat Frederick Weatherly, a koja je tri godine kasnije iskorištena kao tekst za tradicionalnu irsku melodiju Londonderry Air. Pod tim je nazivom postala neslužbenom himnom Irska odnosno irske dijaspore. Trenutno služi kao himna Sjeverne Irske na Komonveltskim igrama.

Postoje brojne verzije i obrade, a često je korištena u holivudskim filmovima i TV-serijama.

Tekst[uredi - уреди]

(na engleskom; postoje brojne varijacije)

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the leaves are falling
T'is you, T'is you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
t'is I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

And when ye come, and all the flow'rs are dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
ye'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.
And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And oh, my grave shall warmer, sweeter be
For ye will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.
