Verse:
Em G DIn Banbridge Town in the County Down
Em C DOne morning last July,
Em G DFrom a boreen green came a sweet colleen
Em D EmAnd she smiled as she passed me by.
G DShe looked so sweet from her two bare feet
Em C DTo the sheen of her nut brown hair.
Em G DSuch a coaxing elf, sure I shook my self
Em D EmFor to see I was really there.
Chorus:
G DFrom Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and
Em C DFrom Galway to Dublin Town,
Em G DNo maid I've seen like the brown colleen
Em D EmThat I met in the County Down.
Em Verse2:
Em G DAs she onward sped, sure I scratched my head,
Em C DAnd I looked with a feelin' rare,
Em G DAnd I says, says I, to a passer-by,
Em D Em"Who's the maid with the nut brown hair?"
G DHe smiled at me and he says, says he,
Em C D"That's the gem of Ireland's crown.
Em G DYoung Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann,
Em D EmShe's the star of the County Down."
Chorus:
G DFrom Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and
Em C DFrom Galway to Dublin Town,
Em G DNo maid I've seen like the brown colleen
Em D EmThat I met in the County Down
Bridge: Em G D Em C D Em G D Em D Em Verse3:
Em G DAt the Harvest Fair she'll be surely there
Em C DAnd I'll dress in my Sunday clothes,
Em G DWith my shoes shone bright and my hat cocked right
Em D EmFor a smile from my nut brown rose.
G DNo pipe I'll smoke, no horse I'll yoke
Em C DTill my plough turns rust coloured brown.
Em G DTill a smiling bride by my own fireside
Em D EmSits the star of the County Down.
Chorus:
G DFrom Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and
Em C DFrom Galway to Dublin Town,
Em G DNo maid I've seen like the brown colleen
Em D EmThat I met in the County Down
