Verse:
In [Em]Banbridge Town in the [G]County [D]Down
One [Em]morning [C]last [D]July,
From a [Em]boreen green came a [G]sweet [D]colleen
And she [Em]smiled as she [D]passed me b[Em]y.
She [G]looked so sweet from her [D]two bare feet
To the [Em]sheen of her [C]nut brown [D]hair.
Such a [Em]coaxing elf, sure I [G]shook my [D]self
For to [Em]see I was [D]really [Em]there.
Chorus:
From [G]Bantry Bay up to [D]Derry Quay and
From [Em]Galway to [C]Dublin [D]Town,
No [Em]maid I've seen like the [G]brown coll[D]een
That I [Em]met in the [D]County [Em]Down.
[Em]  
Verse2:
As she [Em]onward sped, sure I [G]scratched my [D]head,
And I [Em]looked with a [C]feelin' [D]rare,
And I [Em]says, says I, to a [G]passer-[D]by,
"Who's the [Em]maid with the [D]nut brown [Em]hair?"
He [G]smiled at me and he [D]says, says he,
"That's the [Em]gem of [C]Ireland's [D]crown.
Young [Em]Rosie McCann from the [G]banks of the [D]Bann,
She's the [Em]star of the [D]County [Em]Down."
Chorus:
From [G]Bantry Bay up to [D]Derry Quay and
From [Em]Galway to [C]Dublin [D]Town,
No [Em]maid I've seen like the [G]brown coll[D]een
That I [Em]met in the [D]County [Em]Down

Verse3:
At the [Em]Harvest Fair she'll be [G]surely [D]there
And I'll [Em]dress in my [C]Sunday [D]clothes,
With my [Em]shoes shone bright and my [G]hat cocked [D]right
For a [Em]smile from my [D]nut brown [Em]rose.
No [G]pipe I'll smoke, no [D]horse I'll yoke
Till my [Em]plough turns [C]rust coloured [D]brown.
Till a [Em]smiling bride by my [G]own fires[D]ide
Sits the [Em]star of the [D]County [Em]Down.
Chorus:
From [G]Bantry Bay up to [D]Derry Quay and
From [Em]Galway to [C]Dublin [D]Town,
No [Em]maid I've seen like the [G]brown coll[D]een
That I [Em]met in the [D]County [Em]Down
