This song is performed by The Limeliters.
I have been a rover I have been a bold deceiver
But now I make me livin' with me pistols and me rapier
I don't know what I've stolen, but twould make a pretty penny
I almost lost it all to me darlin sportin jenny

Musha ring um dur um da
Wack fol the daddy-o
Wack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

I robbed colonel Farrel up on Gilgarry Mountain
I took the gold to Jenny just to help me with the countin'
But Jenny called the guards
Lord I never saw so many
I almost lost my freedom with my darling sporting Jenny

Musha ring um dur um da
Wack fol the daddy-o
Wack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

I'd like to find me brother he's the one that's in the army
I don't know where he's stationed
Be it Cork or in Killarney
Together we'd go roamin' o'er the mountains of Killkenny
I'd swear he'd treat me fairer than my darling sportin' Jenny

Musha ring um dur um da
Wack fol the daddy-o
Wack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

'Twas early in the morning at the barracks of Killarney
My brother took his leave
But he didn't tell the army
Our horses they were speeding,
'twas all over but the shoutin'
Now we make our livin' up on Killgary Mountain.

Musha ring um dur um da
Wack fol the daddy-o
Wack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

Musha ring um dur um da
Wack fol the daddy-o
Wack fol the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar
