Whiskey In The Jaro lyrics

THIN LIZZY Whiskey In The Jaro Lyrics
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
Musha ring dum a doo 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
Being drunk and weary I went to Molly`s chamber
Takin` my Molly with me and I never knew the danger
For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell
I jumped up by my pistols and I shot him with both barrels

Now some men like the fishin` and some men like the fowlin`
And some men like to hear a cannon ball a rollin`
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
