1st Verse
As G I was going over the Em far famed Kerry mountains
I C met with captain Farrell and his G money he was Em counting.
I G first produced my pistol, and Em then produced my rapier.
C Said stand and deliver, for I G am a bold Em deceiver,
//: musha D ring dumma do damma da
G whack for the daddy 'ol
C whack for the daddy 'ol
(G there's whiskey D) in the G jar ://
2nd Verse
I G counted out his money, and it Em made a pretty penny.
I C put it in my pocket and I G took it home to Em Jenny.
She G said and she swore, that she Em never would deceive me,
but the C devil take the women, for they G never can be Em easy
3rd Verse
I G went into my chamber, Em all for to take a slumber,
I C dreamt of gold and jewels and for G sure it was no Em wonder.
But G Jenny took my charges and she Em filled them up with water,
Then C sent for captain Farrel to be G ready for the Em slaughter.
4th Verse
It was G early in the morning, as Em I rose up for travel,
The C guards were all around me and like- G wise captain Em Farrel.
I G first produced my pistol, for she Em stole away my rapier,
But I C couldn't shoot the water so a G prisoner I was Em taken.
5th Verse
If G anyone can aid me, it's my Em brother in the army,
If C I can find his station down in G Cork or in Kil- Em -larney.
And G if he'll come and save me, we'll go Em roving near Kilkenny,
And I C swear he'll treat me better than me G darling sportling Em Jenny
6th Verse
Now G some men take delight in the Em drinking and the roving,
But C others take delight in the G gambling and the Em smoking.
But G I take delight in the Em juice of the barley,
And C courting pretty fair maids in the G morning bright and Em early
