Whiskey in the jar

Vocal - accordion : Wendy- guitar : Alena K- Fiddle : Linda- Guitar solo : Lucy

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 and deliver or the devil he may take ya"

Chorus
Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da
Whack for my daddy, oh
Whack for my daddy, oh
There's whiskey in the jar, oh


I took all of his money
And it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money,
Yeah, and I brought it home to Molly
She swore that she loved me,
No, never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman,
Yeah, for you know she tricked me easy

Chorus

Now some men like a fishin'
but some me, like the fowlin'
some men like to hear
to hear the cannonball 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

Chorus

back -- Retour
