Whiskey In The Jar
 
 

As I was going over the far-famed Kerry Mountains
I met with Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
Saying "Stand and deliver for you are my bold deceiver"
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack fol my daddy-o. Whack fol my daddy-o
Oh there's whiskey in the jar

I counted out my money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in my pocket and I gave it to my Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack fol my daddy-o. Whack fol my daddy-o
Oh there's whiskey in the jar

I went into my chamber for to take a slumber
I dreamt of golden jewels and for sure it was no wonder
For Jenny took my charges and filled them up with water
And sent for Captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack fol my daddy-o. Whack fol my daddy-o
Oh there's whiskey in the jar

'Twas early in the morning just before I rose to travel
The guards were all around me and likewise Captain Farrell
I first produced my pistol for she stole away my rapier
But I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack fol my daddy-o. Whack fol my daddy-o
Oh there's whiskey in the jar

If anyone can aid me it's my brother in the army
I think that he is stationed in Cork or in Killarney
And if he'd come and join me, we'd go rovin' in Kilkenny
I swear he'd treat me fairer than my darling sporting Jenny
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack fol my daddy-o. Whack fol my daddy-o
Oh there's whiskey in the jar

Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack fol my daddy-o. Whack fol my daddy-o
Oh there's whiskey in the jar

Lyrics by traditional.
