The Fields Of Athenrye

	  		
verse 1 
G             Gmaj7 Em 
By a lonely prison wall, 
C                    G        D 
I heard a young girl calling: 
G                    C        D 
"Michael, they have taken you away, 
G                         C 
For you stole Trevelyn's corn, 
G                           D 
So the young might see the morn, 
D                                     G   C   G 
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay." 

tabchorus
G C G Gmaj7 Em Low lie the fields of Athenrye, G D Where once we watched the small free birds fly. G C Our love was on the wing, G D We had dreams and songs to sing, D C G It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenrye.

verse 2 G Gmaj7 Em By a lonely prison wall, C G D I heard a young man calling: G C D "Nothing matters, Mary, when you're free, G C Against the famine and the crown, G D I rebelled, they cut me down, D C G Now you must raise our child with dignity."

G C G Gmaj7 Em Low lie the fields of Athenrye, G D Where once we watched the small free birds fly. G C Our love was on the wing, G D We had dreams and songs to sing, D C G It's so lonely 'round the fields of Athenrye.

verse 3 G Gmaj7 Em By a lonely harbour wall, C G D She watched the last star falling. G C D As the prison ship sailed out against the sky. G C For she lives in hope and prays, G D For her love in Botany Bay, D C D It's so lonely, 'round the fields of Athenrye.
