Whiskey in the Jar Lyrics

Whiskey In The Jar (as made famous by Thin Lizzy) - Nicky Moore/Jake E. Lee

As I was goin' over the Cork and Kerry mountains

 

I saw captain Farrell and his money he was countin'

 

I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier

 

I said stand o'er and deliver or the devil he may take ya

 

Musha ring dum a do dum a da

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

There's whiskey in the jar-o

 

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny

 

I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly

 

She swore that she'd love me never would she leave me

 

But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy

 

Musha ring dum a do dum a da

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

There's whiskey in the jar-o

 

Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber

 

Takin' my money with me and I never knew the danger

 

For about six or maybe seven in walked captain Farrell

 

I jumped up fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels

 

Musha ring dum a do dum a da

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

There's whiskey in the jar-o

 

Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin'

 

And some men like to hear a cannon ball a roarin'

 

Me I like sleepin' specially in my Molly's chamber

 

But here I am in prison here I am with a ball and chain yeah

 

Musha ring dum a do dum a da

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

Whack for my daddy-o

 

There's whiskey in the jar-o

 

And I got drunk on whiskey-o
