Bedlam Bards - Whiskey In the Jar
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
