Lyrics

As I was a goin' over the Cork and Kerry mountains
I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced me pistol and I then produced me rapier
Sayin’: "Stand and deliver, for I am a bold deceiver!”

Mush-a rin dum-a do dum-a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
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 Ginny
She sighed and she swore that no never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy

Mush-a rin dum-a do dum-a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

Being drunk and weary, I went to Ginny's chamber
Took me money with me and I never knew the danger
Ginny drew me charges and she filled ‘em up with water
Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter

Mush-a rin dum-a do dum-a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
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 was Captain Farrell
I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier
I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I am it’s clear

Mush-a rin dum-a do dum-a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

If anyone can aid me, I won’t spout a bunch of blarney
Spring me from this prison and there’s gold out in Killarney
And if you want adventure, we'll go rovin' through Killkenny
And I'm sure you'll treat me better than my own sporting Ginny

Mush-a rin dum-a do dum-a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin'
And some men like ta hear, ta hear cannon balls a roarin'
but I take delight in the juice of the barley
and courting pretty fair maids through the night to bright early

Mush-a rin dum-a do dum-a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar
Mush-a rin dum-a do dum-a da
Whack fol the daddy-o, whack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar
