The Fields of Athenry - Lyrics

By 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."

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,
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 brought me down
Now you must raise our child with dignity."

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,
It's 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.
And she'll live in hope and pray
For her love in Botney Bay
It's so lonely round the fields Of Athenry
