As I was a goin' over Cork and Kerry mountains
I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistols then produced my rapier
I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take you

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o, whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

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 loved me never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman for she knows she treat me easy

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o, whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Round about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell
I jumped up fired off my pistol and I shot him with both barrels

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o, whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Some men like the fishin', some men like the fowlin'
Some men like to hear the cannon ball a-rollin'
Me I like sleepin' 'specially in my Molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am on the ball and chain, yeah

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o, whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o, whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o
