Whiskey In The Jar Lyrics

as i was crossing over
the cork & kerry mountain
i met with captain farrell
and his money he was countin'
i first produced my pistol
then i drew my rapier
sayin' 'stand and deliver
for i am a bold deceiver'

wish a rigum durum dah
whack for the daddy-o
whack for the daddy-o
there's whiskey in the jar

he counted out his 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 woman
for they never can be easy

wish a rigum durum dah
whack for the daddy-o
whack for the daddy-o
there's whiskey in the jar

i went into my chambers
for to take a slumber
i dreamt of gold and jewels
and to that it is no wonder
but jenny took me charges
and she filled them up with water
and sent for captain farrell
to be ready for the slaughter

wish a rigum durum dah
whack for the daddy-o
whack for the daddy-o
there's whiskey in the jar

twas early in the morning
when i rose up to travel
the guards were all around me
and likewise captain farrel
i first produced my pistol
for she stole away my rapier
but i couldn't shoot the water
so a prisoner i was taken

wish a rigum durum dah
whack for the daddy-o
whack for the daddy-o
there's whiskey in the jar

if anyone can save me
it's me brother in the army
i think he must be stationed
out in cork or in kilarney
and if he'd come and join me
we'd go riding in kilkenny
i swear he'd treat me better
than me darlin' sportin' jenny

wish a rigum durum dah
whack for the daddy-o
whack for the daddy-o
there's whiskey in the jar.
