Verse 1      C                 Am             
          As I was going over, Kil-gary Mountain,
            F                                C            Am
          I met with Captain Farrell and his money he was count'n.
           F                           C                Am   
          First I drew my pistol and I rattled forth me sabre, 
           F                      C              Am  
          Stand and deliver for I am your bold deceiver.

Chorus:         G7
          Musha ringum durum da
          C
          What fol the daddy’o   
          F
          What fol the daddy’o
                  C       G7     C  Am  C  Am
          There's whiskey in the jar

Verse 2      C                            Am
          He counted out his money and it made a pretty penny,
            F                         C             Am
          I took the money home and I gave it to my Jenny.
              F                             C             Am
          She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me,
                  F                             C             Am
          But the devil’s in the women and they never will be easy.

Verse 3     C                             Am
          Early in the morning ‘tween the hours of six and seven,
              F                                  C             Am
          The guards were standing ‘round me and numbers are uneven,
              F                       C            Am
          I pulled to my pistols but alas I was mistaken,
              F                          C                Am
          For Jenny wet the powder and a pris-on-er I was taken.

Chorus:         G7 
          Musha ringum durum da
          C
          What fol the daddy’o

          What fol the daddy’o
                  C       G7     C  Am  C  Am
          There's whiskey in the jar

            C                              Am
          I think I’ll find me brother the one that’s in the army,
            F                                     C              Am
          I don’t know where he’s stationed is it Cork or in Killarney?
            F                              C               Am
          Together we’ll go roaming in the mountains of Kilkenny,
      F                                  C                Am
          And I dare he’ll treat me fairer than my darling sportin’ Jenny.

                G7
          Musha ringum durum da
          C
          What fol the daddy’o

          There's whiskey in the jar

           C                        Am
          Some take  delight in the fishin’ and a polein’,
          F                          C          Am
          Others take delight in the carriage a rollin’,
              F                     C            Am
          But I take delight in the juice of the barley,
              F                            C          Am
          And courtin’ pretty girls in the mornin’ so early.
          
                G7
          Musha ringum durum da
          C
          What fol the daddy’o
          F
          What fol the daddy’o
                  C       G7     C  
          There's whiskey in the jar.
