Grateful Dead - Whiskey in the Jar lyrics

As I was a-goin' over Gilgarra mountains I met Colonel Pepper and his money he was counting I drew forth my pistol and I rattled my sabre Saying "stand and deliver, for I am a bold deceiver" Musha ringum duram da Whack-fall the daddy-o Whack-fall the daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar The shining yellow coins did sure look bright and jolly I took the money home and I gave it to my Molly She promised and she vowed that she never would deceive me But the devil's in the women for they never can be easy Musha ringum duram da Whack-fall the daddy-o Whack-fall the daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar When I awoke between the hours of six and seven Guards were standing 'round me in numbers odd and even I flew to my pistols, but alas I was mistaken I fired off my pistols and a prisoner was taken Musha ringum duram da Whack-fall the daddy-o Whack-fall the daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar They put me in jail without a judge or jury For robbing Colonel Pepper in the morning so early They didn't take my fist so I knocked down the sentry And I bid a long farewell to that cold penitentiary Musha ringum duram da Whack-fall the daddy-o Whack-fall the daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar I think I'll find my brother, he's the one that's in the army. I don't know where he's stationed be in Cork or in k**arney. Together we'll go roving thru the Moutains of Kilkenny. I dare he'll treat me fairer than my darling sporting Molly. Musha ringum duram da Whack-fall the daddy-o Whack-fall the daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar Some take delight in fishing and bowling Others take delight in carriage a-rollin' I take delight in the juice of the barley Courting pretty women in the morning so early Musha ringum duram da Whack-fall the daddy-o Whack-fall the daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar
