Lyrics

Star Of The County Down

In Banbridge Town near the county Down one morning in July
Down a boreen green comes a sweet colleen and she smiled as she passed me by
Well she looked so neat from her two brown feet to the sheen of her nut brown hair
Such a coaxing elf sure I shook myself to see if she was really there.

Chorus

Oh from Bantry Bay up to Derry quay, from Galway to Dublin town
No maid I?ve seen like the sweet colleen that I met in the county down

As she onward sped sure I shook my head and I felt with a feeling rare
I sez sez I to a passer by who?s the maid with the nut brow hair
He smiles at me and he sez sez he tis the gem of Irelands crown
Young Rosie McCann from the banks of the ban, she?s the star of the county down

At the harvest fair she?ll be surely there so I?ll dress in me Sunday clothes
And I?ll make sheep?s eyes and I?ll tell some lies to win the heart of the nut brown rose
No pipe I?ll smoke no horse I?ll yolk till my plow turns a rusty brown
Till a smiling bride by my own fire side sits the star of the county down.
