Ronan Keating - Whiskey In The Jar Lyrics

  • I was a-goin over gilgarra mountain
  • I met with captain farrell, and his money he was countin.
  • First I drew my pistols and then I drew my rapier,
  • Sayin stand and deliver, for I am your bold deceiver.
  • Musha ringum duram da,
  • Whack fol the daddy-o,
  • Whack fol the daddy-o,
  • Theres whiskey in the jar.
  • He counted out his money and it made a pretty penny;
  • I put it in my pocket to take home to jenny.
  • She sighed and swore she loved me and never would deceive me,
  • But the devil take the women, for they always lie so easy!
  • Musha ringum duram da
  • I went into me chamber all for to take a slumber,
  • To dream of gold and girls, and of course it was no wonder:
  • Me jenny took me charges and she filled them up with water,
  • Called on captain farrell to get ready for the slaughter.
  • Musha ringum duram da
  • Next mornin early, before I rose for travel,
  • Up came a band of footmen and likewise captain farrell.
  • I goes to draw my pistol, for shed stole away my rapier,
  • But I couldnt shoot for water, so a prisoner I was taken
  • Musha ringum duram da
  • They put me into jail with a judge all a-writin:
  • For robbin colonel farrell on gilgarra mountain.
  • But they didnt take me fists and I knocked the jailer down
  • And bid me a farewell to this tight-fisted town.
  • Musha ringum duram da
  • Id like to find me brother, the one whos in the army;
  • I dont know where hes stationed, be it cork or in killarney.
  • Together wed go roamin oer the mountains of kilkenny,
  • And I swear hed treat me fairer than my darlin sportin jenny!
  • Musha ringum duram da
  • Theres some that takes delight in the carriages and rollin,
  • Some that takes delight in the hurley or the bollin,
  • But I takes delight in the juice of the barley,
  • Courtin pretty maids in the mornin, o so early!
  • Musha ringum duram da
