Verse 1: (light pm, listen for rhythm)
     Eb*                   Ab*               Eb*  Bb*
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl calling
Eb*               Ab*        Bb*
Michael they have taken you away
        Eb*              Ab*          Eb*                 Bb*
For you stole Trevelyn's corn, so the young might see the morn
      Bb*                             Eb
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay

Chorus:
Eb  Ab      Eb             Cm
Low lie the Fields of Athenry
      Eb                  Cm               Bb
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
    Eb              Ab          Eb                  Bb
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
        Bb                               Eb
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry

Bagpipe Fill:

Verse 2:
     Eb*                   Ab*               Eb* Bb*
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man calling
Eb*              Ab*              Bb*
Nothing matters, Mary when you're free
        Eb*            Ab*        Eb*                Bb*
Against famine and the Crown, I rebelled they ran me down
    Bb*                                Eb
Now you must raise our child with dignity

Outro Verse:
     Eb                      Ab                    Eb  Bb
By a lonely harbor wall, she watched the last star falling
        Eb                 Ab              Bb
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
            Eb                Ab            Eb             Bb
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray, for her love in Botany Bay
        Bb                               Eb
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry

The only thing is there's another Cm during the chorus, they play it when he goes "the small free birds..."
