Lyrics:By a lonely prison wall
I heard a young girl calling
"Michael they are taking you
away
For you stole Travellyn´s corn
so that the young might see the morn´

Now the prison ship lies waiting in the bay"

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 ran me down
Now you must raise our child with
dignity"

By a lonely harbour wall
she watched the last star falling

While the prison ship
sailed out against the sky
Sure she wait and hope and pray

for her love in Botany Bay
It´s so lonely round the fields of Athenry


Low lie the fields of Athenry
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 Athenry
