Orthodox Celts
Star Of The County Down


        Em                     G      D         G       Em   D
Near to Banbridge town, in the County Down, one morning in July
       Em                  G          D          G             C      D  Em
Down a boreen green came a sweet colleen and she smiled as she passed me by
    G                       Am                    G            Em        D
She looked so neat from her two white feet to the sheen of her nut-brown hair
         Em                  G        D            Em         C   D    Em
Sure the coaxing elf, I'd to shake myself, to make sure I was standing there


CHORUS:
	     G                Am                  G         Em     D
	From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town
	    Em                     G          D         Em     C   D  Em
	No maid I've seen like the sweet colleen that I met in County Down


        Em                     G      D         G       Em   D
As she onward sped, sure I scratched my head, And I looked with a feelin' are,
       Em                  G          D          G             C      D  Em
And I say's, say's I, to a passer by, "Who's the maid with the nut brown hair?"
    G                       Am                    G            Em        D
He smyiled at me and he say's, say's he, "That's the gem of the Ireland's crown,
         Em                  G        D            Em         C   D    Em
Young Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann, She's the star of the County Down". 


CHORUS:
	     G                Am                  G         Em     D
	From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town
	    Em                     G          D         Em     C   D  Em
	No maid I've seen like the sweet colleen that I met in County Down


        Em                     G      D         G       Em   D
At the harvest fair she'll be surely there So I'll dress in my Sunday clothes,
       Em                  G          D          G             C      D  Em
With my shoes shine bright, and my hat cocked right, For the smile of a nut brown rose.
    G                       Am                    G            Em        D
No pipe I'll smoke, no horse I'll yoke, Till my plough turns rust coloured brown.
         Em                  G        D            Em         C   D    Em
Till a smyling bride, by my own fireside Sits the star of the County Down. 


CHORUS 3x:
	     G                Am                  G         Em     D
	From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town
	    Em                     G          D         Em     C   D  Em
	No maid I've seen like the sweet colleen that I met in County Down
