                        Fields of Athenry
This version is different because it's transcribed it in a different key 
than the others. It works best if the CHORDS are arpegiated while played. Transcribed
by me for the Irish band/group BarleyJuice.

     [C]           [C]     [F]               [C]    [G] [G7]
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl calling
[C]              [F]        [G]  [G7]
Michael they are taking you away
        [C]              [F]            [C]                 [G]
For you stole trevalians corn, that the young might see the morn
        [G]             [G7]            [C]-[F]-[C]
Now the prison ship lies waiting in the bay
[C] [F]     [C]           [Am]
Low lie the Fields of Athenry
     [C]                  [Am]           [G] [G7]
Where once we watched the small free bird fly
   [C]              [F]          [C]                 [G]
Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing
         [G]             [G7]           [C]-[F]-[C]
Now it's lonely round the Fields of Athenry
    [C]            [C]     [F]              [C]     [G] [G7]
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man calling
[C]             [F]              [G]  [G7]
Nothing matters Mary when you're free
            [C]            [F]      [C]                  [G]
Against the famine and the crown, I rebelled, they ran me down
    [G]               [G7]           [C]-[F]-[C]         
Now you must raise our child with dignity
     [C]            [C]       [F]                   [C]   [G] [G7]
By a lonely harbour wall, she watched the last star falling
       [C]               [F]              [G] [G7]
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
          [C]                [F]          [C]            [G]
But she'll wait and hope and pray, for her love in Botany Bay
       [G]              [G7]           [C]-[F]-[C]
It's so lonely round the Fields of Athenry
