                G	        Em
As I was going over, Gilgara Mountain, 
   C	                     G
I spied colonel Farrel, and his money he was counting.
	                    Em
At first I drew my pistol, and then I drew my rapier,
             C		G
saying: "Stand and deliver, for I am your bold deciver"
            D7	                *
Musha Ringum Durum Da 
G	             **
Whack Fol the Daddy 'o
Em                  C
Whack Fol the Daddy 'o
           G           D7     G
there's whiskey in the jar
      G		  Em
He counted out his money, and it made a pretty penny,
   C	
I put it in my pocket,
            G
to take home to darling Jenny,

She sighed and swore she loved me, 
      Em 
and never would decieve me,
            C
but the Devil take the women,
             G
for they always lie so easy

Chorus


And next morning early, 
    Em
before I rose for travel,
C
a-came a band of footmen,
              G
and likewise Colonel Farrel,

I goes to draw my pistol, 
     Em
for she had stolen away my rapier,
         C
but a prisoner I was taken, 
    G
I couldn't shoot the water

Chorus







They put into jail, 
           Em
with a judge all a writtin'.
C
Robbin' Colonel Farrel, 
     G
on Gilgara Mountain.

But they didn't take me fists, 
           Em  ***
and I knocked the jailer down,
C
and bid a farewell
           G
to this tight fisted town

Chorus


There's some takes delight,
            Em
in the carriages and rollin'.
C
Some takes delight
          G
in the Hurley or the Bollin'

But I takes delight, 
          Em
in the juice of the barley,
   C
Courtin' pretty maids
            G
in the mornin', oh so early.

Chorus (Play the last two lines fast)


*= After the "Musha Ringum Durum Da" make three knocks on your guitar with your fist
**= After"Whack Fol the Daddy 'O" do This: Press and play Big E string in fret 3, then let go, 
    press and play the Big E in fret 2, let go and play  the Big E string once while it's 
    loose - it makes a cool effect that goes like this: Dew, Duw, Doow. Do this at every chorus!
*** While playing "And I knocked the jailer down", do a hammer (hit the strings hard) on "knocked".

Written by David Pontoppidan. Effects by Claus Funder.
