    W:1) Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
    W:From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
    W:The summer's gone, and all the leaves are falling
    W:T'is you, T'is you must go and I must bide.
    W:
    W:2) But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
    W:Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
    W:t'is I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow
    W:Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.
    W:
    W:3) And when ye come, and all the flow'rs are dying
    W:If I am dead, as dead I well may be
    W:ye'll come and find the place where I am lying
    W:And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.
    W:
    W:4) And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
    W:And oh, my grave shall warmer, sweeter be
    W:For ye will bend and tell me that you love me
    W:And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.
    W:
  

Arrangement Note: Some liberties were taken to fit this melody within the range of NAF. A potion of notes between measures 24-28 have been arranged to fit. This was the primary reason this melody was not
transposed up to avoid the half-holing. Sometimes compromises are necessary to arrange a melody within the constraints of this wonderful instrument.
