《Star of the County Down》歌詞:byRosheen mp3歌詞


Near Banbridge town, in the County Down

One morning last July

Down a bóithrín green came a sweet cailín

And she smiled as she passed me by.

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay

And from Galway to Dublin town

No maid I’ve seen like the brown cailín

That I met in the County Down.

She looked so sweet from her two bare feet

To the sheen of her nut brown hair

Such a coaxing elf, sure I shook myself

To be sure I was really there.

From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay

And from Galway to Dublin town

No maid I’ve seen like the brown cailín

That I met in the County Down.

As she onward sped I scratched my head

And I looked with a feeling rare

And I said, says I, to a passerby

“Who’s the maid with the nut-brown hair?”

He smiled at me, and, he says, says he,

“That’s the gem of Ireland’s crown.

Young Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann

She’s the star of the County Down.”

At the Harvest Fair she’ll be surely there

And I’ll dress in my Sunday clothes,

With my shoes shone bright and my hat cocked right

For a smile from my nut brown rose.

No pipe I’ll smoke, no horse I’ll yoke

Till my plough turns rust coloured 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

No maid I’ve seen like the brown cailín

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 cailín

That I met in the County Down.
