Fields of Athonrye - Lyrics

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

Flow like, 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 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 cut me down
Now you must raise a child with dignity

Flow like, 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 lonely harbour wall
She watched the last star falling
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
Though she lived and hoped and prayed
For her love in Botney Bay
Its so lonely round the Fields Of Athenry

Flow like, 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
Flow like, 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
Its so lonely round the fields of athenry
