Fields Of Athenry

Irish Rovers

 G
By a lonely prison wall
 CGDD7
heard a young girl calling    
 GCDD7
 Michael, they have taken you away  
 GC
For you stole Trevelyn's corn
 GD
So the young might see the morn
 DD7G
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay

 GCGEm
 Low lie the fields of Athenry
 GEmDD7
 Where once we watched the small free birds fly  
 GCGD
 Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
 DD7G
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry

By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young man calling
Nothing matters, Mary when you're free
Against the famine and the crown
I rebelled, they cut me down
Now you must raise our child with dignity

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry

By a lonely harbor wall
She watched the last star falling
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray
For her love in Botany Bay
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry

Low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry
