Joop zingt op het lustrumfeest

Dit lied heeft Joop ten gehore gebracht (naast vele andere!):

By a lonely prison wall,
I heard a young girl call:
“Michael, they have taken you away,
For you stole Trevelyn’s corn,
So the young might see the morn.
Now a prison ship lies waiting in the bay.”

Refrain:
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 call
“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.”
Refrain:

By a lonely harbor wall,
She watched the last star fall
As the prison ship sailed out against the sky
For she lived to hope and pray
For her love in Botany Bay
It’s so lonely round the fields of Athenry.
Refrain:

  1. Ja, een prachtige avond. Goed idee Cyriel. Misschien dat liedbundel eerder uitgeven zodat iedereen met volle borst kan mee zingen of het 35-jarige bestaan.
