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

Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o

I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy
Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
There's whiskey in the jar
I went up to my chamber, all for to take a slumber
But Jenny blew me charges and she filled them up with water

Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o

Up comes a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrell
I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken
Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
There's whiskey in the jar
There's some take delight in the carriages a rolling
but I take delight in the juice of the barley

Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o

If I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny
Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
There's whiskey in the jar
