lyrics

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

Lone-li are 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 'round the fields of Athenry.

By a lonely prison wall,
I heard a young man calling:
Nothing matters, Mary, when you're free
'Gainst the famine and the Crown,
I rebelled, they cuts me down.
Now you must raise our child with dignity.

Lone-li are 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 'round the fields of Athenry.

By a lonely harbour wall,
She (I) watched the last hour falling
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
For she'll (I'll) live and hope and pray,
For her (my) love in Botany Bay
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry.

Lone-li are 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 'round the fields of Athenry.

It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry.
