Whiskey In The Jar (Live)

In the style of

The Dubliners

Lyrics

as i was goin' over
the far famed kerry mountains

i met with captain farrell
and his money he was counting

i first produced my pistol
and i then produced my rapier

saying stand and deliver
for he were a bold deceiver

mush-a ring dum-a
do dum-a da

whack for my daddy-oh

whack for my daddy-oh

there's whiskey in the jar

i counted out his money
and it made a pretty penny

i put it in me pocket and
i took it home to jenny

she sighed and she swore that
she never would deceive me

but the devil take the women
for they never can be easy

mush-a ring dum-a
do dum-a da

whack for my daddy-oh

whack for my daddy-oh

there's whiskey in the jar

i went up to my chamber
all for to take a slumber

i dreamt of gold and jewels
and for sure it was no wonder

but jenny drew
me charges and

she filled them up with water

then sent for captain farrell

to be ready for the slaughter

mush-a ring dum-a
do dum-a da

whack for my daddy-oh

whack for my daddy-oh

there's whiskey in the jar

it was was early in the morning
just before i rose to travel

up comes a band of footmen
and like wise captain farrell

i first produced me pistol
for she stole away me rapier

i couldn't shoot the water
so a prisoner i was taken

mush-a ring dum-a
do dum-a da

whack for my daddy-oh

whack for my daddy-oh

there's whiskey in the jar

if anyone can aid me
it's my brother in the army

if i can find his station
in cork or in killarney

and if he'll go with me

we'll go rovin' in killkenny

and i'm sure he'll treat me
better than my own

a-sporting jenny

mush-a ring dum-a
do dum-a da

whack for my daddy-oh

whack for my daddy-oh

there's whiskey in the jar

mush-a ring dum-a
do dum-a da

whack for my daddy-oh

whack for my daddy-oh
there's whiskey in the jar

ooh
