Star of the County Down - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Near Banbridge Town
in the County Down
one morning last july
From a boreen green
came a sweet colleen
for the smile
just that passed me by
She looked so sweet
from her two bare feet
to the sheen
of her nut brown hair
Such a coaxing elf
sure I shook myself
for to see
I was realy there
R.:
From Bantry Bay
up to Derry Quay
and from Galway
to Dublin Town
No maid I've seen
like the brown colleen
that I met in the
County Down
As she onward sped
sure I scratched my head
and I looked with a feelin' rare
And I say's, say's I
to a passer by
Who's the maid
with the nut brown hair
He smiled at me
and he say's, say's he
"That's the gem
of the Ireland's crown
Young Rosie McCann
from the banks of the Bann
she's the star
of the County Down"
R.:
From Bantry Bay
up to Derry Quay
and from Galway
to Dublin Town
No maid I've seen
like the brown colleen
that I met in the
County Down
At the harvest fair
she'll be surely there
so I'll dress in my Sunday clothes
With my shoes shine bright
and my hat cocked right
for the smile
of a nut brown rose
No pipe I'll smoke
no horse I'll yoke
till my plough
turns rust coloured brown
Till a smiling bride
by my own fireside
sits the star
of the County Down
R.:
From Bantry Bay
up to Derry Quay
and from Galway
to Dublin Town
No maid I've seen
like the brown colleen
that I met in the
County Down
