  1. As I was going over the Cork and Kerry mountains
    I met with Captain Farrell
    And his money he was counting
    I first produced my pistol
    I then produced my rapier
    Saying "Stand and deliver
    For you are a bold deceiver"

    [Chorus:]
    With me ring dum a doodle um dah
    Whack fol the daddy o
    Whack fol the daddy o
    There's whiskey in the jar

    I counted out his money it made a pretty penny
    I put it in my pocket and took it home to jenny
    She sighed and she swore
    That she never would deceive me
    But the devil take those women
    For they never can be easy

    [Chorus:]

    I went into my chamber all for to take a slumber
    I dreamt of gold and jewels
    And for sure it was no wonder
    But Jenny drew me charges
    And filled them up with water
    And she sent for Captain Farrell
    To be ready for the slaughter

    [Chorus:]

    It was early in the morning before I rose to travel
    Up comes a band of footmen
    And with them Captain Farrell
    I first produced me pistol
    For she'd taken away my rapier
    But I couldn't shoot the water
    So a prisoner I was taken

    [Chorus:]

    If anyone can aid me, 'tis my brother in the army
    If I could find his station in Cork or in Killarney
    And if he'd come and join me
    We'd go rovin' in Kilkenny
    I'm sure he'd treat me fairer
    Than my own sporting Jenny

    [Chorus:]

    Some take delight in fishing or in boating
    Some take delight in the carriage wheels a rolling
    But I take delight in the juice of the barley
    And courtin' pretty fair maids in the morning
    Bright and early

    [Chorus: X2]
