Fields of Athenry  Dropkick Murphys

Dropkick Murphys ? Fields of Athenry (by griesas) --
 A---8---10---8--11--10---8-----------------6--- 8--- 8---|

4x 1x 1x 3x 1x 1x
By a lonel[D#5]y prison wall,
[G#5]I heard a young girl [D#5]calli[B5]ng
M[D#5]ichael, they have t[G#5]aken you aw[B5]ay,
For you [D#5]stole Trevelyan´s c[G#5]orn,
So the [D#5]young might see the [B5]morn.
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the [D#5]bay.
[D#5]Low [G#5]lie the f[D#5]ields of A[C5]thenry.
[D#5]Where once we watched the s[C5]mall free birds [B5]fly.
Our l[D#5]ove was on the w[G#5]ing,
[D#5]we had dreams and songs to s[B5]ing
It´s so lonely round the fields of At[D#5]henry
[Strobe 2:] 
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, thy cut me down.
Now you must raise our child with dignity.
[Strobe 3:] 
By a lonely harbor wall, she watched the last star falling.
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
Sure she´ll wait and hope , for her love in Botany Bay
It´s so lonely round the fields of Athenry
