METALLICA (1998) - Whiskey in the Jar

 

As I was goin' over - the Cork and Kerry mountains

I saw Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'

I first produced my pistol - and then produced my rapier

I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya

 

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny

I took all of his money yeah and I brought it home to Molly

She swore that she'd love me, no never would she leave me

But the devil take that woman yeah for you know she tricked me easy

 

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da

Whack for my daddy-o

Whack for my daddy-o

theres whiskey in the jar-o

Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber

Takin' money with me, I never knew the danger

For aboutsixormaybe seven in walked Captain Farrell

I jumped up fired my pistols - I shot him with both barrels

 

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da

Whack for my daddy-o

Whack for my daddy-o

There's whiskey in the jar

Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin'

And some men like ta hear, ta hear the cannon ball a roarin'

Me I like sleepin', specially in my Molly's chamber

But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah

 

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da yeah

Whack for my daddy-o

Whack for my daddy-o

There's whiskey in the jar

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da

Hey, musha ring dum a doo dum a da

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
