The Star Of The County Down - John McCormack

Near Banbridge town,

in the County Down

One evening last July

Down a boithrin green came a sweet cailin

And she smiled as she passed me by.

She looked so neat in her two bare 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 down to Derry Quay

From Galway to Dublin town

No maid I've seen like the fair cailin

That I met in the County Down.

 

As she onward sped I shook my head

And I gazed with a feeling queer

And I said, says I, to a passerby

"Who's your one with the nut-brown hair?"

He smiled at me, and with pride says he,

"She's the gem of old Ireland's crown.

Young Rosie McCann from

the banks of the Bann

And the star of the County Down."

From Bantry Bay down to Derry Quay

From Galway to Dublin town

No maid I've seen like the fair cailin

That I met in the County Down.

 

At the harvest fair she'll be surely there

and I'll dress my Sunday clothes

With my hat cocked right

and my shoes shon bright

for a smile from the nut-brown Rose

No horse I'll yoke, or pipe I smoke,

'til the rust in my plough turn brown

And a smiling bride by my own fireside

sits the star of the County Down

From Bantry Bay down to Derry Quay

From Galway to Dublin town

No maid I've seen like the fair cailin

That I met in the County Down.
