Kilgary Mountain or WHISKEY IN THE JAR As I was a-walkin' 'round Kilgary Mountain I met with Captain Pepper as his money he was countin' I rattled my pistols and I drew forth my saber Sayin', "Stand and deliver, for I am the bold deceiver" Musha rig um du rum da Whack fol the daddy o Whack fol the daddy o There's whiskey in the jar The shinin' golden coins did look so bright and jolly I took 'em with me home and I gave 'em to my Molly She promised and she vowed that she never would deceive me But the devil's in the women and they never can be easy When I was awakened between six and seven The guards were all around me in numbers odd and even I flew to my pistols, but alas I was mistaken For Molly's drawn my pistols and a prisoner I was taken They put me into jail without judge or writin' For robbing Colonel Pepper on Kilgary Mountain But they didn't take my fists so I knocked the sentry down And bid a fond farewell to the jail in Sligo town Now some take delight in fishin' and in bowlin' And others take delight in carriages a-rollin' But I take delight in the juice of the barley And courtin' pretty girls in the morning so early Recorded by Frank Warner DT #326 Laws L13 Printed in Cole SOF
