Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Fields Of Athenry  Irish Rovers

By a [G]lonely prison wall
I [C]heard a young girl [G]calli[D]ng   [D7]
[G]Michael, they have [C]taken you [D]away [D7]
For you [G]stole Trevelyn's [C]corn
So the y[G]oung might see the [D]morn
Now a [D]prison ship lies [D7]waiting in the [G]bay


[G]Low [C]lie the [G]fields of Athen[Em]ry
[G]Where once we watched the [Em]small free birds [D]fly [D7]
[G]Our love was on the [C]wing we had [G]dreams and songs to [D]sing
It's so [D]lonely 'round the [D7]fields of Athen[G]ry
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
