Classic rendition by Thin Lizzy of an old Irish folklore song. I put this up because all the youtube versions cut short the fantastic solo. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
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 or the devil he may take ya!
(Chorus) Musha ring dum a doo dum a da Wept for my daddy-o Wept for my daddy-o Theres whiskey in the jar-o!
I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly She swore that she'd love me, never would she leave me But the devil take that woman! For you know she tricked me easy
Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber Takin' my money with me and I never knew the danger For about five, six or maybe seven, in walked Captain Farrell I jumped up, fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels!
Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin' And some men like ta hear, a cannon ball a roarin' But me I like a sleepin, specially in my Molly's chamber But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah
