"Whiskey In The Jar"

[Verse 1]
As I was going over the Kilmagenny mountain
I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol, and the produced my saber
Said stand and deliver, for I am your bold deceiver

[Chorus]
Musha ring dumma do damma da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 2]
He counted out his money, and it made a pretty penny
I took the money home and they gave it to my Jenny
She cried and she swore, that she never would deceive me
But the devil is in the women, and they never will be easy

[Chorus]
Musha ring dumma do damma da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 3]
Early in the morning, between the hours of six and seven
The guards were standin' round me and numbers are uneven
I flew to my pistols but a lasse, I was mistaken
For jenny wet the powder and a prisoner I was taken

[Chorus]
Musha ring dumma do damma da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 4]
I think I'll find my brother, the one thats in the army
I dont know where he's stationed, is it Cork or in Killarney
Together we'll go roaming in the mountains of Kilmagenny
And I dear he'll treat me fair' than me darling sportling Jenny

[Chorus]
Musha ring dumma do damma da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 5}
Some take delight in the fishing and bowling
Others take delight in the cariage a rollin'
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
Courting pretty girls in the morning so early

[Chorus]
Musha ring dumma do damma da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Whack, Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar

Musha ring dumma do damma da
Do do dum da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Do do dum da
Whack, Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar

Musha ring dumma do damma da
Do do dum da
Whack for the daddy 'ol
Do do dum da
Whack, Whack for the daddy 'ol
There's whiskey in the jar
