The Fields Of Athenry


by Irish Music. Buy album CD: Other Songs C - W


By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young girl calling
"Michael they have taken you away
For you stole Treveleyn's corn
So the young might see the morn
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay"

(Chorus)
Low, lie the Fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing
We dreams and songs to sing
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"

(Chorus)

By a lonely harbour wall
She watched the last star falling
As the 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

(Chorus)
