Verse:
   Em                    G      D
In Banbridge Town in the County Down
    Em      C    D
One morning last July,
       Em                  G     D
From a boreen green came a sweet colleen
        Em            D          Em
And she smiled as she passed me by.
    G                        D
She looked so sweet from her two bare feet
       Em           C         D
To the sheen of her nut brown hair.
       Em                  G        D
Such a coaxing elf, sure I shook my self
       Em        D      Em
For to see I was really there.

Chorus:
     G                D
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and
     Em        C      D
From Galway to Dublin Town,
   Em                      G         D
No maid I've seen like the brown colleen
       Em         D      Em
That I met in the County Down.

Verse2:
       Em                  G            D
As she onward sped, sure I scratched my head,
      Em            C       D
And I looked with a feelin' rare,
      Em                 G      D
And I says, says I, to a passer-by,
           Em            D         Em
"Who's the maid with the nut brown hair?"
   G                   D
He smiled at me and he says, says he,
            Em     C         D
"That's the gem of Ireland's crown.
      Em                    G            D
Young Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann,
          Em          D      Em
She's the star of the County Down."

Chorus:
     G                D
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and
     Em        C      D
From Galway to Dublin Town,
   Em                      G         D
No maid I've seen like the brown colleen
       Em         D      Em
That I met in the County Down

Verse3:
       Em                     G      D
At the Harvest Fair she'll be surely there
         Em          C      D
And I'll dress in my Sunday clothes,
        Em                        G          D
With my shoes shone bright and my hat cocked right
      Em            D         Em
For a smile from my nut brown rose.
   G                   D
No pipe I'll smoke, no horse I'll yoke
        Em           C             D
Till my plough turns rust coloured brown.
       Em                  G        D
Till a smiling bride by my own fireside
         Em          D      Em
Sits the star of the County Down.

Chorus:
     G                D
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and
     Em        C      D
From Galway to Dublin Town,
   Em                      G         D
No maid I've seen like the brown colleen
       Em         D      Em
That I met in the County Down
