FIELDS OF ATHENRY

By a [D]lonely prison wall, I [G]heard a young girl [D]cal- [A]ling
[D]"Michael, they have [G]taken you a-[A]way,
For you [D]stole Trevelyan's [G]corn,
So the [D]young might see the [A]morn.
Now a [Em]prison ship lies [A]waiting in the [D]bay."

[D]Low [G]lie the [D]fields of Athen-[Bm]ry
Where [D]once we watched the small free birds [A]fly
Our [D]love was on the [G]wing
We had [D]dreams and songs to [A]sing
It's so [Em]lonely round the [A]fields of Athen-[D]ry.

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."

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

tune is available on mudcat.....

While I think Mudcat is basically a Good Thing, I'm not sure if we should be publicly printing information which will help even more people to sing "The Fields of Athenry"

These chords are much appreciated. While I fully agree that some songs are over played and should be killed off (Hotel California is my personal pet hate) this will prevent a number of irate Irish blokes from lynching me next time I go to work - cheers.

Perhaps all you wannabe English comedians out ther should pay as much attention to promoting traditional English Songs as knocking Irish songs then perhaps the English might regain back some respect by the rest of the world. Whom I am afraid only view you as football hooligans and lager louts.

Lighten up, MrL. YOu don't seem to understand the mythical status which this song has acquired. Like the bodhran, it's not all bad but nobody can resist the temptation to slag it.

Now we have to guess whether Guest,SH is winding us up or not.

Why am I still drawn like a moth to "Fields of Athenry" threads ;-)?
