    Near Banbridge town in the County Down
    One morning last July,
    From a boreen green came a sweet Colleen
    And she smiled as she 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 so see I was really there.

    From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay
    And from Galway to Dublin town,
    No maid I've seen like the fair colleen
    That I met in the County Down.

    As she onward sped, sure I scratched my head
    And I looked with a feeling rare.
    And I say, 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 Ireland's 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
    And I'll dress in my Sunday clothes,
    With my shoes shone bright and my hat cocked right
    For a smile from my nut brown rose.
    No pipe I'll smoke, no horse I'll yoke
    'Til my plough it is rust coloured brown.
    'Til a smiling bride, by my own fireside
    Sits the Star of the County Down
