  1. My friend Kenny Brown called on me many times to sing Danny Boy and My Old Kentucky Home, including his mass marriage ceremony, and it was always a honor because As former Commissioner of motor vehicles for the Commonwealth of Kentucky I knew he did superior work for the county. His Job was his passion and Jesus was his Lord. Kenny was a true Irishman , not just on Saint Patrick’s day but every day. He was truly a true public servant and will be sorely missed by all our Commonwealth. I will think of him with love whenever I sing “My Old Kentucky Home ” and or Danny Boy. Love to Kenny, like me was a stout man with broad shoulders capable of caring for many responsibilities the Lord presented to him and his family and friends.
    Another Kentucky Irish Gentleman has entered Heaven today and his name is Kenny Brown.
    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition of Godly Principles and love and prayers for all of us and our Nation and World and Kenny Brown And family and friends.

    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,
    You’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!

    When Irish eyes are smiling
    Sure ’tis like a morn in spring
    In the lilt of Irish laughter
    You can hear the angels sing

    When Irish hearts are happy
    All the world seems bright and gay
    And when Irish eyes are smiling
    Sure they steal your heart away

    When Irish hearts are happy
    All the world seems bright and gay
    And when Irish eyes are smiling
    Sure they steal your heart away
