C Am As I was a goin’ over Gilgarra mountain, F C Am I met Colonel Pepper and his money he was counting F C Am I drew forth my pistol and rattled my saber F C Am Saying, "Stand and deliver, for I am a bold deceiver." G7 Musha ringum duram da C C7 Whack! Fol de daddy-o F Whack! Fol de daddy-o C G7 C There’s whiskey in the jar The shining yellow coins did sure look bright and jolly I took the money home and I gave it 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 awoke between the hours of six and seven Guards were standing ‘round me in numbers odd and even I flew to my pistol, but alas, I was mistaken I fired off my pistols and a prisoner was taken They put me in jail without a judge or jury For robbing Colonel Pepper in the morning so early They didn’t take my fist so I knocked down the sentry And I bid a long farewell to that cold penitentiary Some take delight in fishing and bowling Others take delight in the carriage a rollin’ I take delight in the juice of the barley Courting pretty women in the mornin’ so early
