The fields of Athenry - lyrics

Show song Facebook

By lonely prison walls I heard a young girl calling
Singing Michael they have taken you away
For you stole Trevelyn's corn so the young might see the morn
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay
Low, low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely around the fields of Athenry
By lonely harbor walls I heard a young man calling
Singing nothing matters Mary when you're free
Against the famine and the crown I rebelled they cut me down
Now you must raise our child in dignity
Low, low lie the fields of Athenry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
Our love was on the wing we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely around the fields of Athenry
