Whiskey In The Jar Lyrics

As I was going 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.
Said stand and deliver, for you are a bold deceiver,

musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar

I counted out his money, and it made a pretty penny.
I put it in my 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

musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar

I went into my chamber, all for to take a slumber,
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no
wonder.
But Jenny took my charges and she filled them up with
water,
Then sent for captain Farrel to be ready for the
slaughter.

musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar

It was early in the morning, just before I rose for
travel,
Come on a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrel.
I first produced me pistol, for she stole away me
rapier,
But I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was
taken.

musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar

Now some take delight in the carriages a rolling,
But others take delight in the harley and the bowling.
But I take delight in the juice of the barley,
And courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright
and early

musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar

If anyone can aid me, it's me brother in the army,
If I can find his station down in Cork or in Killarney.
And if he'll go with me, we'll go roving in Kilkenny,
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than me sporting
Jenny

musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar
musha ring dumma do damma da
whack for the daddy 'ol
whack for the daddy 'ol
there's whiskey in the jar
