Star Of The County Down

	  		
verse 1 

         Em        C            G      D 
Close to Banbridge town, in the County Down, 
    Em             D 
one morning last July, 
       Em       C            G       D 
down a boreen green came a sweet colleen, 
        Em             C     D  Em 
and she smiled as she passed me by. 

verse 2 
     G                       D 
She looked so neat from her two bare feet, 
       Em                     D 
to the sheen of her nut brown hair. 
       Em      C           G       D 
Such a coaxing elf, I'd to shake myself, 
        Em         C   D  Em 
to make sure I was really there. 

tabchorus
G D From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay, Em D and from Galway to Dublin town, Em C G D no maid I've seen like the brown colleen, Em C D Em that I met in the County Down

verse 3 Em C G D As she onward sped I sure I scratched my head, Em D and I said with a feeling rare. Em C G D 'A-y-e,' says I to a passer-by, Em C D Em 'Who's the maid with the nut brown hair?' verse 4 G D He smiled at me, and then says he, Em D 'She?s the gem of Ireland's crown, Em C G D young Rosie McCann, from the banks of the Bann, Em C D Em she's the Star of the County Down.'

Verse 5 Em C G D At the harvest fair I'll be surely there, Em D and I'll dress in my Sunday clothes. Em C G D With my shoes shone bright and my head upright, Em C D Em and a smile from my nut-brown Rose. Verse 5 G D No pipe I smoke, no horse I yoke, Em D let my plough with rust turn brown, Em C G D till a smiling bride by my own fireside, Em C D Em sits the star of the County Down.
