Near Bambridge town in the County Down
One morning last July
Down the boreen came a sweet colleen
And she smiled as she passed me by
She looked so sweet from her two bare feet
To the crown of her nut-brown hair
Such a winsome elf that I pinched myself
To see 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 colleen
That I met in the County Down
