As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
There's whiskey in the jar
I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me

I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure 't was no wonder
Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter
't was early in the morning, just before I rose to travel
I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier

and others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
and courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early
If anyone can aid me 't is my brother in the army
And if he'll go with me, we'll go rovin' through Killkenny
