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
