Whiskey In The Jar

Nolwenn Leroy


As I was a goin' over
the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with captain Farrell
and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol
And then produced my rapier
"Stand and deliver
For I am a bold deceiver"

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for the daddy-o
Whack for the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

I counted out his money
And it made a pretty penny
I put it in my pocket
And I took it home to Johnny
He said and he swore
That he never would deceive me
The devil take the men
For they never can be easy

I went up to my chamber,
All for to take a slumber
I dreamt of gold and jewels
And for sure 't was no wonder
Johnny took my charges and
He filled them up with water
Then sent for captain Farrell
To be ready for the slaughter

It was early in the morning,
As I rose up for travel
The guards were all around me
And likewise captain Farrell
I first produced me pistol
For he stole away my rapier
I couldn't shoot the water,
So a prisoner I was taken

If anyone can aid me
It's my brother in the army
If I can find his station
Down in Cork or in Killarney
And if he'll come and save me,
We'll go roving near Killkenny
I swear he'll treat me better
Than me darling sportling Johnny

Now some men take delight
In the drinking and the roving
The others take delight
In the gambling and the smoking
But I take delight
In the juice of the barley
And courting handsome lovers
In the morning bright and early
