[Verse 1]
 
D                            G                  D   A    
By the lonely prison wall, i heard a young girl cal-ling
D                 G           A
Micheal they have taken you a-way
        D               G           D                   A
For you stole trevelins corn so the young might see the morn
A                                 D  
A prison ship lies waiting in the bay


[Chorus]

D   G       D             Bm          
Low Lie The fields of athenry 
      D                   Bm               A  
where once we watched the small free birds fly
    D            G 
our love was the wing 
       D                   A
We had dreams and songs to sing
A                                      D
and so lonely round the fields of athenry


[Verse 2]

D                            G                 D   A  
By the lonely prison wall, i heard a young man cal-ling
D               G              A
Nothing matters mary when your free
            D              G          D                  A               
against the famine and the crown, i rebelled they cut me down
A                                  D
now you must raise our child with dignity


[Chorus]

D   G       D              Bm          
Low Lie The fields of athenry 
      D                   Bm               A  
where once we watched the small free birds fly
    D            G 
our love was the wing 
       D                   A
We had dreams and songs to sing
A                                   D
and so lonely round the fields of athenry


[Verse]

D                              G                     D  A
By the lonely harbor wall, she watched the last star fa-ll
       D                  G               A
as the prison ship sailed out against the sky
        D                 G            D               A 
for she lived to hope and pray for her love in botany bay
A                                           D
and it's so lonely round the fields of athenry


[Chorus]  x2

D   G       D              Bm          
Low Lie The fields of athenry 
      D                   Bm               A  
where once we watched the small free birds fly
    D            G 
our love was the wing 
       D                   A
We had dreams and songs to sing
A                                   D
and so lonely round the fields of athenry

The Youtube video is in E not D. Paddy is playing in the D formation with a capo on the second fret which is E. Same chords different key if you want to play along. You can also capo the 4th and play in C formation. C Am F G or G7 one of the others is playing there. (I don't remember all their names.)

This isn't a traditional tune. It was written in the 1970s by Pete St. John.
