137. Whiskey in the jar direkt zu den Akkorden

As I was going over the far famed Kerry Mountain,
I met with Captain Farewell, and his money he was counting.
I first produced my pistol, and then produced my rapier.
Saying stand and deliver, for you are the bold deceiver.

||: Musha ring dam duram dah, wack fol the daddy oh.
Wack fol the daddy oh, there's whiskey in the jar. :||

2. Strophe:
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 sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me,
but the Devil take the woman, 'cause they never can be easy.

3. Strophe:
I went into my chamber, all for to take a slumber,
I dreamed of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder.
But Jenny drew me charges and she filled them up with water,
and send for Captain Farewell to be ready for the slaughter.

4. Strophe:
It was early in the morning, just before I rose to travel,
up comes a band of footmen and likewise Captain Farewell,
I first produced my pistol, for she'd stole away my rapier,
but I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken.

5. Strophe:
And if anyone can help me 't is my brother in the army,
if we can fight a station, in the Cork or in Killarny
and if he'll go with me, we'll go roaming in Kilkenny
and he'll treat me better, then my only sporting Jenny.
