The Fields Of Athenry chords
Paddy Reilly  (Pete St. John) *

B7 E

     E
By a lonely prison wall
  A                  E   B7
I heard a young girl calling
E                A           B7
Micheal they are taking you away
        E                A
For you stole Trevelyn's corn
       E                   B7
So the young might see the morn. 
                                      E   A E
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay. 

E   A       E              C#m
Low lie the Fields of Athenry
      E                   C#m              B7
Where once we watched the small free birds fly.
    E               A           E                   B7
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
                                         E  A E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry. 

     E
By a lonely prison wall
  A                 E   B7
I heard a young man calling
E              A              B7
Nothing matter Mary when your free,
            E              A
Against the Famine and the Crown
    E                  B7
I rebelled they cut me down 
                                       E  A E
Now you must raise our child with dignity. 

E   A       E              C#m
Low lie the Fields of Athenry
      E                   C#m              B7
Where once we watched the small free birds fly.
    E               A           E                   B7
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
                                         E  A E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry. 

     E
By a lonely harbor wall
    A                     E   B7
She watched the last star falling
E                   A                      B7
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky
            E                 A
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray
        E              B7
For her love in Botany Bay 
                                         E  A E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry. 

E   A       E              C#m
Low lie the Fields of Athenry
      E                   C#m              B7
Where once we watched the small free birds fly.
    E               A           E                   B7
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
                                         E  A E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.
