[Verse 1]
Eb
By a lonely prison wall
Ab                   Eb    Bb
I heard a young girl call--ing
Eb                Ab        Bb
Micheal they have taken you away
        Eb               Ab
For you stole Trevelyn's corn
       Eb                  Bb
So the young might see the morn
                                      Eb
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.

[Chorus]

Of Athenry
Eb                                         Bb
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
    Eb              Ab
Our love was on the wing
       Eb                  Bb
We had dreams and songs to sing
                                  Eb
Its so lonely round the fields of athenry.

[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)
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.

Our love was on the wing

We had dreams and songs to sing
                                  Eb
Its so lonely round the fields of athenry.

[Verse 3]
(same as verse 1)
By a lonely harbour wall
She watched the last star falling
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray
For her love at Botany bay
It's so lonely round the fields of athenry.

Its so lonely round the fields of athenry.

Yours is the ONLY version on Ultimate-Guitar that is in the right key to be played with the bagpipes, and also the only version that sounds correct when played along with the Dropkick Murphys version of this song.
