Whiskey In The Jar Lyrics

As I was a 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
Said "Stand and deliver" for i am a bold deceiver

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o. Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jars:

I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in my pocket and I took it home to Johnny
He said and he swore that he never would deceive me
But the devil take the men for they never can be easy

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o. Whack for my daddy-o
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 Johnny took my charges
and he 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-o. Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

It was early in the morning, just before I rose for travel
The guards were all around me and likewise captain Farrell
I first produced my pistol for he stole away my rapier
But 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-o. Whack for my daddy-o
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 come and save me, we'll go rovin' near Killkenny
And i swear he'll treat me better than
me darling sportling Johnny

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o. Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

Now some men take delight in the drinking and the roving
But others take delight in the gambling and the smoking
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
And courting handsome lovers
in the morning bright and early

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o. Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar
