"By a ____ ____ ____"
Lowly prison wall
Lonely prison wall

Comely little home
Holy Christian well
"I heard a ____ ____ ____"
Young girl bawling
Young lad mauling

Young lamb falling
Young girl calling
"_____ they are taking you away"

"For you ____ ____ ____"
Stole Magellan's horn
Stole Trevelyan's corn

Stole the morning's dawn
Stole the rebel's corn
"So the young might ___ ___ ___"
Live to mourn
Ease the scorn

Wage a war
See the morn
"Now a ___ ___ lies waiting in the bay...."
Prison ship
Famine ship

Coffin ship
"___ ___ the Fields of Athenry!"
Oh my
Low lie

On high
Low by
"Where once we watched the _______"
Small wee crows fly
Small birds fly

Small free birds fly
Small free crows fly
"Our love was ___ ___ ___"
On the wain
On the way

On the mend
On the wing
"We had dreams and ____ ____ ____"
Love to bring
Not a thing

Songs to sing
Nothing to gain
"It's so ____ 'round the Fields of Athenry"
