丹尼男孩有許多版本,以下是最初版:

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 roses falling,
It's you, it's 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,
It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,
Oh, Danny Boy, oh Danny Boy, I love you so!

But when ye come, and all the flowers 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, though soft you tread above me,
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be,
For you will bend and tell me that you love me,
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me! [4][6]

意義[编辑]

關於丹尼男孩的寓意有許多不同的說法,[7] 比如說是家長寫給出征或出國的兒子。

1918年版的丹尼男孩使用了不同的歌詞,并記載道:“當由男子演唱時,應使用斜體詞語。即“Eily Dear”,而不是常由女子演唱的“Danny Boy””。然而並不能斷定這是威德里本人的意願。[8]
