    W.G.Ewald I don't about whiskey but the plebeian folks here prefer 100% ethyl alcohol with a dash of lime and pinch of salt

    As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
    I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting
    I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
    Saying "Stand and deliver" for he were a bold deceiver

    Chorus:
    Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
    Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
    There's whiskey in the jar

    I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
    I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
    She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
    But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

    (Chorus)

    I went up to my chamber, all for to take a slumber
    I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure 't was no wonder
    But Jenny blew me charges and she filled them up with water
    Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter

    (Chorus)

    't was early in the morning, just before I rose to travel
    Up comes a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrell
    I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier
    I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken

    (Chorus)

    Now there's some take delight in the carriages a rolling
    and others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
    but I take delight in the juice of the barley
    and courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

    (Chorus)

    If anyone can aid me 't is my brother in the army
    If I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney
    And if he'll go with me, we'll go rovin' through Killkenny
    And I'm sure he'll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny

    (Chorus)

    About 15 years ago, our state imposed a 100% liquor prohibition (that's right, it's illegal to buy/sell/consume liquor, even beer). I remember my dad paying the equivalent of $1000 to smuggle in four bottles of Jack Daniels from neighbouring Maharashtra.

    A bit of trivia for you: Moore County, Tennessee, in which the Jack Daniels distillery resides, is a "dry" county.:-D
