         D                   D7        G                      D    A
By a lonely prison wall I heard a young girl calling,
    D                         G               A       A7
Michael, they have taken you away.
               D                          G                  D                             A
For you stole Trevelyan's corn, so the young might see the morn,
               Em                    A                 D
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.

        G          D                 Bm
Low lie the fields of Athenry,
              D                          Bm                  A       A7
Where once we watched small free birds fly.
        D                         G                 D                                  A
Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing,
            Em                       A                 D
It's so lonely around the fields of Athenry.

         D                    D7       G                         D     A
By a lonely prison wall I heard a young man calling,
     D                    G                            A       A7
Mary, nothing matters when you're free,
                       D                      G             D                             A 
Against the famine and the Crown I rebelled, they ran me down, 
              Em                      A                          D
Please say that you will watch and wait for me.

                                  D7             G                          D    A 
By a lonely harbour wall she watched the last star falling,
             D                          G                     A      A7
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky.
                    D                          G                 D                     A
Sure she'll live and hope and pray for her love in Botany Bay, 
             Em                    A                    D
It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.
