"The Fields of Athenry" as performed by Jill Anderson

D                           G                  D  A
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl calling
D                    G     D    A
"Michael, they are takin’ you away,
          D                 G
For you stole Trevelyan's corn,
         D                  A
So the young might see the morn.
                                   A7  D
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay."

         G        D
And low lie the fields of Athenry
                                            A
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
      D              G
Our love was on the wing
         D                   A
We had dreams and songs to sing
                                    A7  D
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.

D                            G                D  A
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man calling
 D                 G     D           A
"Nothing matters, Mary, when you're free
             D               G
Against the famine and the crown,
     D                    A
I rebelled, they ran me down.
                                   A7 D
Now you must raise our child with dignity."

         G        D
And low lie the fields of Athenry
                                            A
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
      D              G
Our love was on the wing
         D                   A
We had dreams and songs to sing
                                    A7  D
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.


D                               G                   D   A
By a lonely harbor wall, she watched the last star falling
D                          G    D          A
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
             D                G            D              A
But she’ll wait and hope and pray for her love in Botany Bay
                                     A7 D
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.

         G        D
And low lie the fields of Athenry
                                            A
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
      D              G
Our love was on the wing
         D                   A
We had dreams and songs to sing
                                    A7  D
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.
  
(Chorus x2)
