As I was going over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with captain Farrell and his money he was
I first produced my pistol, and then took out my rapier
Said stand and deliver, for I am a bold deceiver

Musha ring dumma do damma da
Whack for the daddy-o
Whack for the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

I counted out his money, it made a pretty penny
I put it in my pockets and I brought it home to Jenny
She signed me and she swore me, that she never would
Betray me
But the devil take the women, for they never can be


I went down to my chamber, announced to take a
I dreamed of gold and jewels and for sure it was no

But Jenny took my charges and filled them up with water
Then sent for captain Farrel to be ready for a


It was early in the morning before I rose to travel
I heard a bunch of footmen and likewise captain Farrel
But Jenny took my charges and stole away my rapier
I couldn't shoot the water so a prisoner I was taken


Now as anyone can help me it's my brother in the army
I'll try to find his station here between Cork and
And if I'm going to travel to the city of Kilkenny
I swear I'll take my rapier and I'll drive it deep in
