[Em]    [G]    [Em]    [G]    
[G]As I was goin' over
the [Em]Cork and Kerry mountains
[C]I saw Captain Farrell
and his [G]money he was countin'
[G]I first produced my pistol
and then [Em]produced my rapier
[C]I said stand and deliver
or the [G]devil he may take ya

Musha [D]ring dum a doo dum a da
[C]Whack for my daddy-o, [C]Whack for my daddy-o
There's [G]whiskey [D]in the [G]jar-o [G]    [F]    [Em]    

[G]I took all of his money
and [Em]it was a pretty penny
[C]I took all of his money
and I [G]brought it home to Molly
[G]She swore that she'd love me,
[Em]never would she leave me
[C]But the devil take that woman
for you [G]know she tricked me easy

Musha [D]ring dum a doo dum a da
[C]Whack for my daddy-o, [C]Whack for my daddy-o
There's [G]whiskey [D]in the [G]jar-o [G]    [F]    [Em]    

[G]Being drunk and weary
I [Em]went to Molly's chamber
[C]Takin' my money with me
and I [G]never knew the danger
[G]For about six or maybe seven
[Em]in walked Captain Farrell
[C]I jumped up, fired off my pistols
and I [G]shot him with both barrels

Musha [D]ring dum a doo dum a da
[C]Whack for my daddy-o, [C]Whack for my daddy-o
There's [G]whiskey [D]in the [G]jar-o [G]    [F]    [Em]    

[G]Now some men like the [Em]fishin'
and some men like the fowlin'
[C]And some men like ta hear a
[G]cannon ball a roarin'
[G]Me I like sleepin'
specially in my [Em]Molly's chamber
[C]But here I am in prison,
here I [G]am with a ball and chain yeah

Musha [D]ring dum a doo dum a da
[C]Whack for my daddy-o, [C]Whack for my daddy-o
There's [G]whiskey [D]in the [G]jar-o [G]    [F]    [Em]
