Thin Lizzy - Whiskey In The Jar (John Peel Session, 1972)

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 o'er and deliver or
the devil he may take ya
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack for my daddy o
Whack for my daddy o
There's whiskey in the jar o
I took all of his money and it
was a pretty penny
I took all of his money and I
brought it home to Molly
She swore that she'd love me
never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman
for you know she tricked me easy
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack for my daddy o
Whack for my daddy o
There's whiskey in the jar o
Being drunk and weary I went to
Molly's chamber
Takin' my money with me and I
never knew the danger
For about six or maybe seven in
walked captain Farrell
I jumped up fired off my
pistols and I shot him
with both barrels
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack for my daddy o
Whack for my daddy o
There's whiskey in the jar o
Now some men like the fishin'
and some men like the fowlin'
And some men like to hear a
cannon ball a 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
Musha ring dum a do dum a da
Whack for my daddy o
Whack for my daddy o
There's whiskey in the jar o
And I got drunk on whiskey o
And I love I love I love
I love I love I love my Molly o
