  歌词以叙事的手法表现了一个青年男子在小镇上看上了一个迷人的姑娘并爱上了她的过程。路人说,这个姑娘是爱尔兰王冠上炫目的珠宝,

  而歌名Star of county down就是指这位美丽的乡下姑娘。

  


  歌名: the star of the county down

  歌 词:

  Near Banbridge town, in the County Down

  One morning in July

  Down a boreen green came a sweet colleen

  And she smiled as she passed me by.

  She looked so sweet from her two white feet

  To the sheen of her nut-brown hair

  Such a coaxing elf, I'd to shake myself

  To make sure I was standing there.

  From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay

  And from Galway to Dublin town

  No maid I've seen like the sweet colleen

  That I met in the County Down.

  As she onward sped I shook my head

  And I gazed 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 with pride says he,

  "That's the gem of Ireland's crown.

  She's 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

  No maid I've seen like the sweet colleen

  That I met in the County Down.

  I've travelled a bit, but never was hit

  Since my roving career began

  But fair and square I surrendered there

  To the charms of young Rose McCann.

  I'd a heart to let and no tenant yet

  Did I meet with in shawl or gown

  But in she went and I asked no rent

  From 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 sweet colleen

  That I met in the County Down.

  At the crossroads fair I'll be surely there

  And I'll dress in my Sunday clothes

  And I'll try sheep's eyes, and deludhering lies

  On the heart of the nut-brown rose.

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

  Though with rust my plow turns 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 sweet colleen

  That I met in the County Down.
