Fields Of Athenry Lyrics - Dropkick Murphys

Review The Song (10)



By a lonely prison wall,
I heard a young girl calling
Michael, they are taking you away,
For you stole Trevelyan's corn,
So the young might see the morn.
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

scotland when the Rangers played Celtic.... This song was sung with the word Sinn Fein after "Our love was on the wing" and the letters IRA after "we had dreams and songs to sing".....

katie

theres a few songs that arn't original that they have, johnny i hardly knew ya wasn't original and neither is this one, its the different way of singing it and the different sound they give that makes them "something special"



Katie, you are just bitter and gassy | Reviewer: Big Billy | 3/5/08

I will never forget the night that we listened to this song together. I had the wine pouring and you let out that enormous fart and ruined the mood. Then you waved it at me and I felt sick in the head and nearly fainted from the odor. You ruined this song for me.

This version of "The Fields of Athenry" is no different than the one I've been singing since I was little. The Dropkick Murphys are nothing original, sorry to disappoint.

this song was wrote around the 1870's by a guy named pete st. john the original version is not that good infact it's reli shit i like the dropkick murphys version better but it is a good one when your the pub and it's 2 in the morning:P



Dropkick Murphys forever! | Reviewer: Patrick | 5/20/07

I agree with Holly; This song is definitely being played at my funeral. I'm actually Irish, so this song really meant something ta me. :>
I've never heard it from the original artists, I was searching Dropkick Murphys songs on Limewire, and I randomly clicked on The Fields of Athenry. Now I'm glad I did, and this song is on repeat in my audio player right now. <3



SPICYS GIRL | Reviewer: Holly | 5/7/07
