Star Of The County Down
I usually play this song with capo on 2nd fret.

[Verse 1]
        Am                     C      G         C       Am    G
Near to Banbridge town, in the County Down, one morning in July
       Am                  C          G          C             F      G  Am
Down a boreen green came a sweet colleen and she smiled as she passed me by
    C                       Dm                    C            Am        G
She looked so neat from her two white feet to the sheen of her nut-brown hair
       Am                  C        G            Am         F    G   Am
Sure a coaxing elf, I'd to shake myself, to make sure I was really there

[Chorus]
     C                Dm                  C         Am     G
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town
   Am                      C         G          Am     F   G  Am
No maid I've seen like the brown Colleen that I met in County Down

[Verse 2]
       Am                  C        G          C            Am      G
As she onward sped, sure I shook my head and I gazed with a feeling quare
       Am                C     G             C             F   G     Am
And I said, says I to a passer-by, who's the maid with the nut-brown hair?
    C                    Dm                        C      Am       G
He smiled at me and with pride says he, that's the gem of Irelands crown
            Am                    C            G               Am          F   G   Am
She's young Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann, she's the star of the County Down 

[Chorus]
     C                Dm                  C         Am     G
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town
   Am                      C         G          Am     F   G  Am
No maid I've seen like the brown Colleen that I met in County Down

[Verse 3]
        Am                   C       G         C              Am      G
She'd a soft brown eye and a look so sly and a smile like the rose in June
        Am                      C          G              C         F G   Am
And you held each note from her lily-white throat, as she lilted an Irish tune
       C                 Dm                    C                 Am     G
At the pattern dance you were in trance as she tripped through a jig or reel
         Am                         C         G            Am              F   G   Am
When her eyes she'd roll, she would lift your soul as your heart she would likely steal

[Chorus]
     C                Dm                  C         Am     G
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town
   Am                      C         G          Am     F   G  Am
No maid I've seen like the brown Colleen that I met in County Down

[Verse 4]
       Am                     C      G              C        Am     G
At the harvest fair she'll be surely there and I'll dress my Sunday clothes
        Am                       C          G           C              F   G     Am
With my shoes shon bright and my hat cocked right for a smile from the nut-brown Rose
   C                Dm                      C               Am        G
No pipe I smoke, no horse I'll yoke, let my plough with the rust turn brown
       Am                   C    G            Am          F   G   Am
Till a smiling bride  by my fireside sits the star of the County Down

[Chorus] x2
     C                Dm                  C         Am     G
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town
   Am                      C         G          Am     F   G  Am
No maid I've seen like the brown Colleen that I met in County Down
