FIELDS OF ATHENRY Guitar Chords    

By the lonely prison wall. I
 C                  G  D7
heard a young girl calling.
 G                 C          D7
Michael, they are taking you away, for you
G                 C            G                  D7
stole Trevelyn's corn. So the young might see the morn. 
D7                                   G
Now a prisonship lies waiting in the bay.

G    C        G         Em
Low lie, the Fields of Athenry, where
G                                    D7
once we watched the small free birds fly. Our
G                C            G                   D7
love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing.
        D7                               G
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 ran me down.
Now you must raise our child with dignity.


By a lonely harbour wall
She watched the last star falling.
And 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
