Well, tonight is our last night on earth my friends
So let's sleep with the stars as our ceiling
And kiss me one time and please make it good
It could be our last night until morn'
Well I guess I know that I'll always be
The one and only one for me
But I hope that this once we dance off this dance
What's to be seen now together we'll see
Oh the train it rolls hard on the cold steel track
But that's not the way that I'm goin'
I will step on a dove, have her fly me above
And freighter my back into "home"

Well, tonight at the bottom of the deepest lake
There's a pillow to bed down and slumber
Just to falter our crowns, red beard blow the man down
And let him come down to the heather
Well tonight is our last night on earth my friends
So let's save this together forever
And all pause and yield
Burn life through this field
Tonight's stars, let's just spend them together

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
Now it's 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
Now it's lonely 'round the fields of Athenry

Now it's lonely 'round the fields of Athenry
