  • Whiskey in the Jar [C] As I was going' over the [Am] Cork and Kerry mountains I [F] met with Captain Farrell and his [C] money he was counting I first produced my pistol and [Am] then produced my rapier I said [F] stand and deliver or the [C] devil he may take you

    Chorus: Musha [G] ring dum a do dum a da. [C] Whack for my daddy-o, [F] Whack for my daddy-o There's [C] whiskey [G] in the [C] jar

    [C] I counted out his money and it [Am] made a pretty penny, I [F] put it in me pocket and I [C] took it home to Jenny. She sighed and she swore that she [Am] never would deceive me, But the [F] devil take the women for they [C] never can be easy.

    Chorus

    [C] I went up to me chamber all [Am] for to take a slumber I [F] dreamt of gold and jewels and [C] sure it was no wonder, But Jenny drew me charges and she [Am] filled them up with water, And [F] sent for Captain Farrel, to be [C] ready for the slaughter.

    Chorus

    [C] 'Twas early in the morning be- [Am] fore I rose to travel, Up [F] comes a band of footmen and [C] likewise Captain Farrell; I first produce my pistol, for she [Am] stole away my rapier But I [F] couldn't shoot the water, so a [C] prisoner I was taken.

    Chorus

    [C] And if anyone can aid me, 'tis my [Am] brother in the army, If [F] I could learn his station be it [C] Cork or in Killarney. And if he'd come and join me we'd go [Am] roving through Kilkenny, I'm [F] sure he'd treat me fairer than my [C] darling sporting Jenny.

    Chorus

    [C] There's some takes delight in the [Am] carriages a rolling, [F] Some takes delight in the [C] hurley or the bowlin'. But I takes delight in the [Am] juice of the barley, And [F] courting pretty fair maids in the [C] morning bright and early.

    Chorus
