Fields Of Athenry Chords

By a lonely prison wall
    F                 C      G
I heard a young girl cal----ling
   C                F            G
"Michael , they are taking you away"
         C               F
For you stole Treveleyns corn
        C                  G
So the young might see the morn
        F                G             C
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay
[ Tab from: ]
C     F      Am        C
Low, lie the fields of athenry,
Am                        F                G
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
C                   F
Our love was on the wing
       C                   G
We had dreams and songs to sing
       F                G         C
Its so lonely round the Fields of Athenry

By a lonely prison wall,
I heard a young man calling,
Nothing Matters Mary when your free
Against the Famine and the Crown
I rebelled, they ran me down,
Mow you must raise our child with dignity


By a lonely harbour wall
She watched the last star falling
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky.
Sure shell wait and hope and pray,
For her love in Botany Bay.
Its so lonely round the Fields of Athenry
