D D7 G D A By a lonely prison wall I heard a young girl calling, D G A A7 Michael, they have taken you away. D G D A For you stole Trevelyan's corn, so the young might see the morn, Em A D Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay. G D Bm Low lie the fields of Athenry, D Bm A A7 Where once we watched small free birds fly. D G D A Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing, Em A D It's so lonely around the fields of Athenry. D D7 G D A By a lonely prison wall I heard a young man calling, D G A A7 Mary, nothing matters when you're free, D G D A Against the famine and the Crown I rebelled, they ran me down, Em A D Please say that you will watch and wait for me. D7 G D A By a lonely harbour wall she watched the last star falling, D G A A7 As the prison ship sailed out against the sky. D G D A Sure she'll live and hope and pray for her love in Botany Bay, Em A D It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry.
