Whiskey In The Jar   (Silver Sounds 299)   Jack O'Leary
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*As I was going over the Cork and Kerry mountains
I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'

Men star right one time around
Left allemande and weave the ring*
Musha ring dum a do dum a da (*clap clap clap)
Whack fol the daddy-o (*clap clap)

Swing your girl and promenade
Whack fol the daddy-o
Whack fol the daddy-o, there's whiskey in the jar


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Now some men like the fishin', and some men like the fowlin'
And some men like ta hear the Cannonball a roarin'


*I took all his money, and it was a pretty penny
I took all his money yeah, and brought it home to Molly


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around
Walk in with a right & left thru, turn the girl around
Flutter wheel and then, sweep 1/4 more
Pass thru and a right & left thru, turn 'em 'round my friend
Touch 1/4 here, split circulate go twice
Swing the corner lady and promenade tonight
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar


TAG

There's whiskey in the jar

(*Callers: have your dancers do the 3 claps, then 2 claps on the Weave the Ring.)
