Musik 1970er Jahre

Thin Lizzy - Whiskey In The Jar

Whiskey In The Jar

Thin Lizzy ist eine irische Rockband. Ihr Werdegang ist eng mit dem Leben von Philip Lynott verbunden, dem Gründer, langjährigen Komponisten, Bassisten und Sänger der Band.

Durch das eher beiläufig aufgenommene und Ende des Jahres 1972 von Decca als Single veröffentlichte Whiskey in the Jar, eine Version eines bekannten irischen Volksliedes, gewann die Band erstmals größere Aufmerksamkeit. Der Song erreichte Anfang 1973 in der britischen Hitparade den sechsten Platz und war auch in anderen Ländern erfolgreich.

Lyrics

As I was goin' over. The Cork and Kerry mountains. I saw Captain Farrell. And his money he was countin'. I first produced my pistol. And then produced my rapier. I said, "Stand and deliver," Oh, "or the Devil, he may take ya".

I took all of his money. And it was a pretty penny. I took all of his money. Yeah, and I brought it home to Molly. She swore that she'd love me. No, never would she leave me. But the Devil take that woman. Yeah, for you know she tricked me easy.

Mush-a-ring dum a do dum a da. Whack for my daddy-o. Whack for my daddy-o. There's whiskey in the jar-o.

Bein' drunk and weary. I went to Molly's chamber. Takin' Molly with me. But I never knew the danger. For about six, or maybe seven. Yeah, in walked Captain Farrell. I jumped up, fired my pistols. And I shot em with both barrels, yeah.

Mush-a-ring dum a do dum a da, yeah, yeah. Whack for my daddy-o. Whack for my daddy-o.There's whiskey in the jar-o.

Yeah-eh, whiskey. Yo-ho whiskey. Wo-ho-ooh yeah hey yeah, wow. Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh ho-ooh-oh. Yeah hey yeah.

Now some men like a fishin'. And some man like the foulin'. Some men like ta hear. Ta hear the cannonball roarin'. Me I like sleepin'. 'Specially in my Molly's chamber. But here I am in prison. Here I am with a ball and chain, yeah.

Mush-a-ring dum a do dum a da, hey he-ah. Whack for my daddy-o. Whack for my daddy-o. There's whiskey in the jar-o, yeah.

Whiskey in the jar-o, yeah. Mush-a-ring dum a do dum a da. Mush-a-ring dum a do dum a da. Hey-ah. Mush-a-ring dum a do dum a da. Mush-a-ring dum a do dum a da. Yeah-eh.
