The Fields of Athenry: ROI Songs


Ireland Football Team

Traditional folk song written in the 70's

Lyrics

* Not all the song is on there, sorry. These are the lyrics in their entirety. By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl calling: "Michael, they have taken you away, For you stole Trevelyans corn, So the young might see the morn, Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay." Chorus: 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, Its so lonely round the fields of Athenry. By a lonely prison wall I heard a young man calling: "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 with dignity. (Chorus) By a lonely harbour wall, she watched the last star falling, As the prison ship sailed out against the sky, And she lived in hope and prayed, For her love in Botney Bay, Its so lonely round the Fields of Athenry. (Chorus)
