Lyrics Whiskey in the Jar

As I was 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
Saying stand and deliver for he were a bold deceiver
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da whack for my daddy-oh
Whack for my daddy-oh 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 Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da whack for my daddy-oh
Whack for my daddy-oh there's whiskey in the jar
I went up to my chamber all for to take a slumber
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder
But Jenny drew me charges and she 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-oh
Whack for my daddy-oh there's whiskey in the jar
It was was early in the morning just before I rose to travel
Up comes a band of footmen and like wise captain Farrell
I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier
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-oh
Whack for my daddy-oh 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 go with me we'll go rovin' in Killkenny
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da whack for my daddy-oh
Whack for my daddy-oh there's whiskey in the jar
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da whack for my daddy-oh
Whack for my daddy-oh there's whiskey in the jar ooh
