Whiskey in The jar

Recorded with a Crown Tape Recorder S2H3 South Side Hash First away weekend

Macau 1979

Memories!
Where are they all now?

 

As I was going over, the fair Gilgary mountains
I met with Captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced me pistol, then I produced me rapier
Saying stand and deliver for you are a bold deceiver

 

Chorus

Misha ring durum da Wack fal de daddy oh
wack fal de daddy oh
There's whiskey in the jar

 

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


I went into my chamber a for to take a slumber
I was crammed with gold and jewels and for sure it was no lumber
But Jenny drew me charges and filled them up with water
And sent for Captain Farrell to be ready for to slaughter


There some take delight in the hurling and the bowling
There's other take delight in the fighting and the rolling
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
And courting pretty fair maids in the morning
Bright and early

And if anyone can aid me, its me brother in the army
And if I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney
And if he will go with me we'll go rolling in Kilkenny
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than me old mis-sporting Jenny
