Tears For Beers

Tears For Beers - Star Of The County Down

Close to Banbridge town, in the county Down

One morning last July

Down a boreen green came a sweet colleen

And she smiled as she passed me by;

She looked so neat from 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 really there.

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay,

And from Galway to Dublin town,

Na maid I`ve seen like the brown collen,

That I met in the country Down

As sho onward sped sure I sratched my head

And I said with a feeling rare,

Ay", says I to a passer by,

Who`s the maid with the nut-brown hair?"

He smiled at me, and then says he:

She`s the gem of Ireland`s crown,

young Rosie McCann, from the banks of the Bann,

she`s the Star of the county Down".

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay,

And from Galway to Dublin town,

Na maid I've seen like the brown collen,

That I met in the county Down

At the harvest fair I`ll be surely there

And I dress in my Sunday clothes

With my shoes shone bright and my hat upright

And a smile from my nut-brown rose.

No pipe I smoke, no horse I`ll yoke

Let me plough with a rust turn brown

Till a smiling bride by my own fireside

Sits the Star of the County Down

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay,

And from Galway to Dublin town,

Na maid I`ve seen like the brown colleen,

That I met in the county Down

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay,

And from Galway to Dublin town,

No maid I`ve seen like the brown colleen,

That I met in the county Down
