By a lonely prison wall, 

G#5                  D#5  B5
I heard a young girl calling

 D#5                G#5        B5
Michael, they have taken you away,

        D#5                G#5
For you stole Trevelyan´s corn,

       D#5                 B5
So the young might see the morn.

Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.


D#5 G#5      D#5       C5                  
Low lie the fields of Athenry. 

D#5                        C5              B5
Where once we watched the small free birds fly.

     D#5             G#5                  
Our love was on the wing, 

D#5                         B5
we had dreams and songs to sing

It´s so lonely round the fields of Athenry

[Strohe 2:]

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, thy cut me down.
Now you must raise our child with dignity.


[Strohe 3:]

By a lonely harbor wall, she watched the last star falling.
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
Sure she´ll wait and hope , for her love in Botany Bay
It´s so lonely round the fields of Athenry
