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 loved me,
No, never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman,
Yeah, for you know she tricked me easy
 Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da Whack for my daddy, oh Whack for my daddy, oh
There's whiskey in the jar, oh
 Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber Takin' Molly with me
But I never knew the danger For about six or maybe seven,
Yeah, in walked Captain Farrell I jumped up, fired my pistols And I shot him with both barrels 
Yeah, musha rain dum a doo, dum a da, ha, yeah Whack for my daddy, oh Whack for my daddy, oh
There's whiskey in the jar, oh

Yeah, whiskey, yo, whiskey Oh, oh, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah

Now some men like a fishin'
But some men like the fowlin'
Some men like to hear,
To hear the cannonball 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 rain dum a doo, dum a da, heh, heh Whack for my daddy, oh Whack for my daddy, oh
There's whiskey in the jar, oh, yeah Whiskey in the jar, oh
 Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da, hey Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da Musha rain dum a doo, dum a da, yeah
