[Verse 1]

G Em
As I was goin over the cork and kerry mountains
C G
I saw captain farrell and his money he was countin
Em
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
C G
I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya

[Chorus]

D C
Musha ring dum a doo dum a da

Whack for my daddy-o

Whack for my daddy-o
G F Em G F Em G
Theres whiskey in the jar-o

[Verse 2]

Em
I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
C G
I took all of his money and I brought it home to molly
Em
She swore that shed love me, never would she leave me
C G
But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy

[Chorus]

Being drunk and weary I went to mollys chamber

Takin my money with me and I never knew the danger
