                             Whiskey In The Jar

   G                    Em
As I was goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains, 
  C                               G            D
I met with Captain Farrel and his money he was countin'
  G                            Em
I first produced me pistol and then produced me rapier,
     C                           G
Sayin' "Stand and deliver for you are a bold deceiver"

      D
Musha rig um du rum da
G
Whack fol the daddy O,
C
Whack fol the daddy O,
        G       D      G
There's whiskey in the jar.

  G                            Em
I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
  C                         G                  D                       
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to my Jenny
    G                             Em
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
        C                             G
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

      D
Musha rig um du rum da
G
Whack fol the daddy O,
C
Whack fol the daddy O,
        G       D      G
There's whiskey in the jar.

  G                          Em
I went up to my chamber, all for to take a slumber
  C                                 G              D
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure 't was no wonder
    G                             Em
But Jenny drew me charges and she filled them up with water
     C                              G
Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter

      D
Musha rig um du rum da
G
Whack fol the daddy O,
C
Whack fol the daddy O,
        G       D      G
There's whiskey in the jar.

       G                            Em
't was early in the morning, just before I rose to travel
   C                               G            D
Up comes a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrell
  G                                Em
I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier
  C                              G
I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken

      D
Musha rig um du rum da
G
Whack fol the daddy O,
C
Whack fol the daddy O,
        G       D      G
There's whiskey in the jar.

    G                                Em
Now there's some take delight in the carriages a rolling
    C                          G               D
and others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
    G                     Em
but I take delight in the juice of the barley
    C                                 G
and courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

      D
Musha rig um du rum da
G
Whack fol the daddy O,
C
Whack fol the daddy O,
        G       D      G
There's whiskey in the jar.

   G                          Em
If anyone can aid me 't is me brother in the army
   C                         G            D
If I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney
    G                             Em
And if he'll go with me, we'll go rovin' through Killkenny
    C                                      G
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny

      D
Musha rig um du rum da
G
Whack fol the daddy O,
C
Whack fol the daddy O,
        G       D      G
There's whiskey in the jar.

I cannot begin to list all the errors and complete omissions of verses in this version. But if you would like to hear it done correctly, find a version of "Kilgarry Mountain" (Whisky in the Jar) by Pete Yarrow of Peter, Paul, and Mary fame. Now, that's Irish!!!!

Of all the versions posted here, this is the only one that actually works, and the closest to what being irish means
