GUEST,Donal Origins: Danny Boy (introductory verse) (13) RE: Origins: Danny Boy (introductory verse) 12 Nov 03


Moljac,
       I saved the Tommy Fleming "Danny Boy" on my computer from a local radio show,
unfortunately my hearing is far from perfect and this below is all I could make out.
There are a further two lines of which I could make no sense whatsoever. Of course
I don't have a clue who wrote the extra verse/s, but it is obviously a reprise of the main
elements of the normal song, which follows after the mising lines, however the author
seems to assume that it was Danny in the grave, which is not consistent with Fred
Weatherly's original song.


The valley's hushed, the flowers are dying,
The meadows ? are white with the winter snow,
? as I stand in the place where Danny's lying,
I say a silent prayer, somehow I know,
You hear me though soft I tread above you
