Verse 1: (light pm, listen for rythym)
     Eb*                   G#*               Eb*  Bb*
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl calling
Eb*               G#*        Bb*
Michael they have taken you away
        Eb*              G#*          Eb*                 Bb*
For you stole Trevelyn's corn, so the young might see the morn
      Bb*                             Eb
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay

Chorus:
Eb  G#      Eb             Cm
Low lie the Fields of Athenry
      Eb                  G#               Bb
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
    Eb              G#          Eb                  Bb
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
        Bb                               Eb
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry

Verse 2:
     Eb*                   G#*               Eb* Bb*
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man calling
Eb*              G#*              Bb*
Nothing matters, Mary when you're free
        Eb*            G#*        Eb*                Bb*
Against famine and the Crown, I rebelled they ran me down
    Bb*                                Eb
Now you must raise our child with dignity

Outro Verse:
     Eb                      G#                    Eb  Bb
By a lonely harbor wall, she watched the last star falling
        Eb                 G#              Bb
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
            Eb                G#            Eb             Bb
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray, for her love in Botany Bay
        Bb                               Eb
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry
