THE FIELDS OF ATHENRY

Dubliners

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

[Refrain]
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 '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 brought me down,
Now you must raise our child with dignity."

[Refrain]

By a lonely harbour wall, she watched the last star falling,
As that prison ship sailed out against the sky,
For she lived in hope and prayed for her love in Botany Bay,
It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry.

[Refrain]
