    Lyrics

    Close to Banbridge town, in the county Down
    One morning last July
    Down a boreen green came a sweet colleen
    And she smiled as she passed me by;
    She looked so neat from her two bare feet,
    To the sheen of her nut-brown hair,
    Such a coaxing elf, I'd to shake myself,
    To make sure I was really there.

    From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay,
    And from Galway to Dublin town,
    Na maid I've seen like the brown collen,
    That I met in the country Down

    As sho onward sped sure I sratched my head
    And I said with a feeling rare,
    Ay", says I to a passer by,
    Who's the maid with the nut-brown hair?"
    He smiled at me, and then says he:
    She's the gem of Ireland's crown,
    young Rosie McCann, from the banks of the Bann,
    she's the Star of the county Down".

    From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay,
    And from Galway to Dublin town,
    Na maid I've seen like the brown collen,
    That I met in the county Down

    At the harvest fair I'll be surely there
    And I dress in my Sunday clothes
    With my shoes shone bright and my hat upright
    And a smile from my nut-brown rose.
    No pipe I smoke, no horse I'll yoke
    Let me plough with a rust turn brown
    Till a smiling bride by my own fireside
    Sits the Star of the County Down

    From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay,
    And from Galway to Dublin town,
    Na maid I've seen like the brown colleen,
    That I met in the county Down

    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
