Whiskey In The Jar by The Dubliners

Intro: 4/4 |    F    |   C   G   C   C  |     C     |
             violin...                   banjo/guitar...

      C                         Am
1. As I was goi-n’ o-ver___ The far famed Ker-ry Mount-ains
      F                                    C
   I met with Cap-tain Fa-rrel___ And his mon-ey he was count-in'
       C                                 Am
   I first pro-duced me pistol___ And I then pro-duced me rap-ier
             F                             C
   Say-in' stand and de-l-iver___ For you are a bold de-ceiv-er
 
                G                        C
Chorus: Mu-sha ring duram doo duram da___ Whack fol da dad-dy O
       F                                   C      G       C
        Whack fol da dad-dy O___ There's whisk-ey in the jar.

       C                                Am
2. I count-ed out his mon-ey___ And it made a pret-ty pen-ny
      F                              C
   I put it in me  pock-et___ And I took it home to Jen-ny
         C                              Am
   She sighed and she swore___ That she nev-er would de-ceive me
           F                                   C
   But the de-vil take the wo-men___ For they nev-er can be eas-y

                G                        C
Chorus: Mu-sha ring duram doo duram da___ Whack fol da dad-dy O
       F                                   C      G       C
        Whack fol da dad-dy O___ There's whisk-ey in the jar.

          C                        Am
3. I went in-to my cham-ber___ All for to take a slum-ber
       F                                    C
   I dreamt of gold and jew-els___ And for sure it was no won-der
        C                                  Am
   But Jen-ny drew me charges___ And she filled them up with wat-er
         F                                  C
   Then sent for Cap-tain Far-rel___ To be read-y for the slaugh-ter

                G                        C
Chorus: Mu-sha ring duram doo duram da___ Whack fol da dad-dy O
       F                                   C      G       C
        Whack fol da dad-dy O___ There's whisk-ey in the jar.

         C                                  Am
4.'Twas ear-ly in the  mor-nin’___ Just be-fore I rose to trav-el
        F                              C
   Up comes a band of foot-men___ And like-wise Cap-tain Far-rel
       C                                      Am
   I first pro-duced me pis-tol___ For she’d stol-en a-way me rap-ier
           F                                 C
   But I could-n't shoot the wat-er___ So a pris-o-ner I was tak-en

                G                        C
Chorus: Mu-sha ring duram doo duram da___ Whack fol da dad-dy O
       F                                   C      G       C

         C                                  Am
5. Now there's some take de-light___ In the car-ria-ges a rollin’
        F                               C
   And oth-ers take de-light___ In the hur-ley and the bow-lin'
       C                          Am
   But I take de-light___ In the juice of the bar-ley
         F                                     C
   And court-ing pret-ty fair maids___ In the morn-ing bright and ear-ly

                G                        C
Chorus: Mu-sha ring duram doo duram da___ Whack fol da dad-dy O
       F                                   C      G       C
        Whack fol da dad-dy O___ There's whisk-ey in the jar.
 
       C                            Am
6. If any-one can aid me___'Tis me broth-er in the ar-my
      F                              C
   If I can find his sta-tion___ In Cork or in Kil-lar-ney
       C                               Am
   And if he'll go with me___ We'll go rov-ing in Kil-ken-ny
            F                                     C
   And I'm sure he'll treat me bet-ter___ Than me on-ly sport-ing Jen-ny

                G                        C
Chorus: Mu-sha ring duram doo duram da___ Whack fol da dad-dy O
       F                                   C      G       C
        Whack fol da dad-dy O___ There's whisk-ey in the jar.
