Dubliners – Whiskey In The Jar chords

Whiskey In The Jar


C AmAs I was going over the cork and Kerry mountains,
F CI met with Captain Farrel and his money he was counting.
AmI first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier,
F CSaying 'Stand and deliver for you are my bold deceiver'.
GMusha ring dum a doo dum a da
CWhack fol the daddy o,
FWhack fol the daddy o,
C G CThere's whiskey in the jar.
C AmHe counted out his money and it was a pretty penny
F CI put it in my pocket and I took it home to Jenny
AmShe sighed and she swore that never would she leave me
F CBut the devil take the women for they never can be easy
C AmI went into my chamber all for to take a slumber,
F CI dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure it was no wonder.
AmBut Jenny drew my charges, she filled them up with water,
F CShe sent for Captain Farrel to be ready for the slaughter.
C Am'Twas early in the morning, just before I rose to travel
F CUp comes a band of troopers likewise Captain Farrel
AmI then produced my pistol for she stole away my rapier
F CBut I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken
C AmNow there's some take delight in the carriages a rolling
F Cand others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
Ambut I take delight in the juice of the barley
F Cand courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early
C AmIf anyone can help me, it's my brother in the army,
F CIf I can find his station be it Cork or in Killarney.
AmAnd if he'd come and join me, we'd go roving in Kilkenny.
F CAnd i'm sure he'll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny.
Chorus: (repeat twice)
