"Danny Boy" is a celtic folk song from a woman to a man, or a chieftain to his son going off to war, no one really knows, providing one of many lyrics set to the Irish tune Londonderry Air.
It was written in 1910 by Frederick Weatherly, an English lawyer, and set to the tune in 1913. The first recording was made by Ernestine Schumann-Heink in 1915.
Weatherly gave the song to Elsie Griffin, who made it one of the most popular in the new century. Weatherly later suggested in 1928 that the second verse would provide a fitting requiem for the actress Ellen Terry.
