By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young girl call-ing
Michael they are taking you a-way____
For you stole Trevelyn's corn, so the young might see the morn
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay____

--Chorus--
Low lie the fields of Athen-ry
Where once we watched the small free birds fly____
Our love was on the wing, we had dreams and songs to sing
It's so lonely round the fields of Athen-ry____
----

By a lonely prison wall, I heard a young man call-ing
Nothing matters, Mary, when you're free____
Against the Famine and the Crown, I re-belled, they ran me down
Now you must raise our child with digni-ty____

By a lonely harbour wall, she watched the last star fall-ing
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky____
Sure she'll wait and hope and pray, for her love in Botany Bay
It's so lonely round the fields of Athen-ry
