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

Intro: B B7 B/C# E
E                          A             E       B7
By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl calling,
E                 A         B 
Michael they have taken you away,
        E                 A
For you stole Trevelyan's corn,
       E                   B
So the young might see the morn,
                                      E
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.

Chorus:
    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                   B
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
                B6        B7             E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

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

Chorus:
    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                   B
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
                B6        B7             E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

Break: A E C#m E C#m B7 Abm B7 E A E B7 E

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
While she'll live and hope and pray,
        E              B
For her love in Botany Bay,
                                    E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.

Chorus:
    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                   B
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
                B6        B7             E  B7 A E
It's so lonely 'round the Fields of Athenry.
