As I was goin' over the Cook and Kerry mountains
I saw Captain Farrell, his money he was countin'
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly
She swore that she'd love me, no never would she leave me
But devil take that woman for you know she tricked me
easy

Musha raim dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Being drunk and weary, I went to Molly's chamber
Takin' Molly with me, but I never knew the danger
For about six, maybe seven, yeah in walked Captian Farrell
I jumped up with my pistols, and I shot him with both barrells

Musha raim dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Yeah, oh
Yeah, oh

Now some men like the fishin'and some man like the fowlin'
And some man like to hear, to hear cannon ball a roarin'
Me I like sleepin'specially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah

Musha raim dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o
Yeah

Whiskey in the jar-o

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da (x4)
