The fields of athenry Lyrics by Ira!
The fields of athenry by Ira!
i heard a young girl calling
Michael they have taken you away,
for you stole trevelyn corn
so the young might see the morn,
now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay
Low lie, The Fields Of Athenry
where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing
we had dreams and songs to sing,
its so lonely round the Fields of Athenry
By a lonley prison wall
I heard a young man calling
'Nothing matters Mary, when you're free'
Against the famine and the crown,
i rebelled, they cut me down
Now you must raise our child with dignaty
By a lonley harbour wall
she watched the last star falling
as the prison ship sailed out against the sky
Sure she'' live in hope and pray
For her love in Botney Bay
Its so lonely round the Fields Of Athenry
