                [Verse 1]

   C                      Am
As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
F                                  C
I met with Captain Farrell and his money he was counting
F                                C
I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
Am*               F*           G*             Am*
Saying "stand and deliver" for he were a bold deceiver

[Chorus]

       G
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
C*           G*
Whack for my daddy-o
F
Whack for my daddy-o
        C       G      C
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 2]

  C                         Am
I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
F                           C
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
F                             C
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
Am*                F*            G*                Am*
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

[Chorus]

       G
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
C*           G*
Whack for my daddy-o
F
Whack for my daddy-o
        C       G      C
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 3]

  C                      Am
I went up to my chamber, all for to take a slumber
F                               C
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure 't was no wonder
F                             C
But Jenny drew me charges and she filled them up with water
Am*                   F*            G*            Am*
Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter

[Chorus]

       G
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
C*           G*
Whack for my daddy-o
F
Whack for my daddy-o
        C       G      C
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 4]

 C                              Am
'Twas was early in the morning, just before I rose to travel
F                              C
Up comes a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrell
F                              C
I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier
Am*                  F*          G*             Am*
I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken

[Chorus]

       G
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
C*           G*
Whack for my daddy-o
F
Whack for my daddy-o
        C       G      C
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 5]

C                             Am
Now there's some take delight in the carriages a-rollin'
F                              C
And others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
F                         C
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
Am*                 F*                G*                 Am*
And courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

[Chorus]

       G
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
C*           G*
Whack for my daddy-o
F
Whack for my daddy-o
        C       G      C
There's whiskey in the jar

[Verse 6]

C                          Am
If anyone can aid me 't is my brother in the army
F                            C
If I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney
F                              C
And if he'll go with me, we'll go rovin' through Killkenny
Am*                F*              G*                     Am*
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny

[Chorus]

       G
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
C*           G*
Whack for my daddy-o
F
Whack for my daddy-o
        C       G      C
There's whiskey in the jar
