  • near banbridge town, in the county down
    one morning in july
    down a boreen green came a sweet colleen
    and she smiled as she passed me by.
    she looked so sweet from her two white feet
    to the sheen of her nut-brown hair
    such a coaxing elf, i'd to shake myself
    to make sure i was standing there.
    from bantry bay up to derry quay
    and 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 i shook my head
    and i gazed with a feeling rare
    and i said, says i, to a passerby
    "who's the maid with the nut-brown hair?"
    he smiled at me, and with pride says he,
    "that's the gem of ireland's crown.
    she's 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
    no maid i've seen like the sweet colleen
    that i met in the county down.

    i've travelled a bit, but never was hit
    since my roving career began
    but fair and square i surrendered there
    to the charms of young rose mccann.
    i'd a heart to let and no tenant yet
    did i meet with in shawl or gown
    but in she went and i asked no rent
    from the star of the county down.
    from bantry bay up to derry quay
    and from galway to dublin town
    no maid i've seen like the sweet colleen
    that i met in the county down.

    at the crossroads fair i'll be surely there
    and i'll dress in my sunday clothes
    and i'll try sheep's eyes, and deludhering lies
    on the heart of the nut-brown rose.
    no pipe i'll smoke, no horse i'll yoke
    though with rust my plow turns 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
    no maid i've seen like the sweet colleen
    that i met in the county down.
