In Banbridge town in the County Down One morning last July From a boreen green came a sweet Colleen 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 to 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 sweet 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 said says I, to a passer-by Who's the maid with the nut-brown hair He smiled at me and he said says he That's the gem of Ireland's crown It's 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 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 turns rust-coloured brown 'Til 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 From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay And from Galway to Dublin town No maid I've seen like the sweet Colleen She's the star of the County Down
