Black Star Riders – Whiskey in the jar
    C                    Am
As I was going over the Kilgary mountains
F C Am
I met Colonel Pepper and his money he was counting
C Am
I rattled my pistols and I drew forth me saber
F C Am
Saying stand and deliver for I am a bold deceiver

Musha rigum da rum da
Whack for the daddy, oh
Whack for the daddy, oh
C G7 C
There's whisky in the jar

The shining golden coins did look so bright and jolly
I took 'em with me home and I gav '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 drawn my pistols, but alas, I was mistaken
For Molly'd 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 Slaigo town
Now, some take delight in fishin' and bowlin'
And others take delight in their carriages a-rollin'
But I take delight in the juice of the barley
And courtin' pretty girls in the mornin' so early
