Whiskey in the Jar

trad. / the Dubliners

C Am
As I was going over the far Kilgarry mountain, I
met with Captain Farrell and his money he was counting.
C Am
I first produced me pistol and I then produced me rapier, saying
F Am
"stand and deliver for you are the bold deceiver."
G7 C
Mu-sha ring doma-du doma-da. Whack for the daddy-oh,
Am F C G7 C
whack for the daddy-oh, there's whisky in the jar.
C Am
I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny,
I put it in me pocket And I took it home to Jenny.
C Am
She sighed and swore that she never would deceive me,
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy.
Mu-sha ring doma-du doma-da ... 
I went into my chamber all for to take a slumber, 
I dreamed of gold and girls - And for sure it was no wonder. 
Me Jenny took me charges and she filled them up with water, 
And set for Caotain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter: 
Mu-sha ring doma-du doma-da ... 
First early in the morning - Just before I rose to travel, 
A-comes a band of footmen and likewise Captain Farrell. 
I first produced me pistol for she stole away my rapier, 
But I couldn't shoot the water for a prisoner I was taken. 
Mu-sha ring doma-du doma-da ... 
Now there's some take delight in the carriages a'rolling, 
and others take delight in the hurley and the bowling. 
But I takes delight in the juice of the barley, 
and courting pretty fair-maids in the morning quite so early. 
Mu-sha ring doma-du doma-da ... 
If anyone can aid me it is me brother the in the army, 
If I can find he's stationed in Cork or in Killarney. 
And if he'll go with me we'll go rolling in Kilkenny, 
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than me only sporting Jenny. 
Mu-sha ring doma-du doma-da ... 
Mu-sha ring doma-du doma-da ...
