Verse: (Guitar 1 Tacet)

D
By a lonely prison wall
G                            D     A
I heard a young girl calling
D                          G             A
Michael, they have taken you away
D                  G
For you stole Trevelyn's corn
           D                           A
So the young might see the morn
A                                                   D 

Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay

(Guitar 1 enters on D chord, both guitars grad. lift PM)



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

Verse (Gtr. 1 Tacet)

D
By a lonely prison wall
    G                          D   A
I heard a young man calling
D                      G                         A
Nothing matters, Mary when you're free
D                                     G
Against the famine and the Crown
D                                A
I rebelled, they cut me down
A                                                D
Now you must raise our child with dignity

(Guitar 1 enters on D chord, both guitars grad. lift PM)



D     G       D           Bm

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

Bagpipe Solo: Chorus Progression (Both gtrs)

D
By a lonely harbor wall
        G                            D    A
She watched the last star falling
D                                   G                     A
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
D                                           G
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray
D                    A
For her love in Botany Bay
A                                             D
It's so lonely ‘round the fields of Athenry
