No Use For A Name - Fields Of Athenry lyrics

By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl callin',
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.

CHORUS
Low lie the fields of Athenry,
where we once watched the small free bird 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 callin',
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.

CHORUS

By a lonely harbour wall, she watched the last star falling,
as that prison ship sailed out against the sky,
for she'll live in hope and pray,
for her love in Botany Bay,
it's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenry.
