The Fields of Athenry
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 cut 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 harbor wall
She watched the last star falling
As that 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

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
