[Intro] 

C F C G

[Verse 1]

      C                     F                   C     G
By a lonely prison wall,  I heard a young girl cal---ling
C                  F          G
Michael they have taken you aw--ay
          C              F           C                    G
For you stole Trevelyn’s corn so the young might see the morn
G                                     C
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay

[Chorus]

C    F      C                Am
Low lie the fields of Athen--ry
      C                   Am               G
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
    C               F
Our love was on the wing
       C                   G
We had dreams and songs to sing
G                                         C
It’s so lonely round the fields of Athen--ry

[Verse 2]

     C                      F                 C     G
By a lonely prison wall,  I heard a young man cal—ling
C               F                G
Nothing matters Mary when you’re free
            C              F        C                     G
Against the famine and the crown, I rebelled they cut me down
G                                      C
Now you must raise our child with dignity

[Chorus]

C    F      C                Am
Low lie the fields of Athen--ry
      C                   Am               G
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
    C               F
Our love was on the wing
       C                   G
We had dreams and songs to sing
G                                         C
It’s so lonely round the fields of Athen--ry

[Verse 3]

     C                          F                    C    G
By a lonely harbour wall,  she watched the last star fal—ing
       C                  F               G
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
           C                F            C              G
For she’ll live in hope and pray for her love in Botany Bay
G                                       C
It’s so lonely round the fields of Athenry

[Chorus]

C    F      C                Am
Low lie the fields of Athen--ry
      C                   Am               G
Where once we watched the small free birds fly
    C               F
Our love was on the wing
       C                   G
We had dreams and songs to sing
G                                         C
It’s so lonely round the fields of Athen--ry

[Outro]

        G                               C
It’s so lonely round the fields of Athenry
                     G                               C
***Slower*** It’s so lonely round the fields of Athenry ***Slower***
