Bedlam Bards - Whiskey In the Jar Lyrics

  • As I was going over the far famed Kerry Mountain’s
  • I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting.
  • I first produced me pistol, and then produced me rapier.
  • Sayin' stand and deliver, for I am your bold deceiver,
  • Chorus
  • musha ringm darram adar, whack for the daddy 'ol
  • Whack for the daddy 'ol, 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 Jenny.
  • She smiled and she swore, that she never would deceive me,
  • But the devil take the women, for they never can be easy
  • Chorus
  • I went into me chamber, for to take a slumber,
  • I dreamt of gold and jewels and sure it was no wonder.
  • For Jenny took my charges and she filled them up with water,
  • And sent for captain Ferrell to be ready for the slaughter.
  • Chorus
  • It was early in the morning, before I rose to travel,
  • The guards were all around me and likewise captain Ferrell.
  • I first produced me pistol, for she stole away me rapier,
  • I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken.
  • Chorus
  • If anyone can aid me, it's me brother in the army,
  • I think that he is stationed in Cork or in Killarney.
  • And if he'll come and join me, we'll go roving in Kilkenny,
  • And I swear he'll treat me better than me darling sporting Jenny
  • Chorus
  • Now some take delight in the hurlin' and the bowling,
  • Others take delight in the carriages a rollin'.
  • But I take delight in the juice of the barley,
  • And courting ren faire wenches in the morning oh so early
  • Chorus
