W: W:Chorus: W:Low lie the fields of Athenry, where once we watched the small free birds fly, W:Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing, W:It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry. W: W:By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man calling, W:Nothing matters Mary when your free, W:Against the famine and the crown, I rebelled, they ran me down, W:Now you must raise our child with dignity. W: W:Chorus W: W:By a lonely harbour wall, she watched the last star falling, W:As the prison ship sailed out against the sky, W:For she lives in hope and prays for her love in Botany Bay, W:It's so lonely round the fields of Athenry W: W:Chorus
