Whiskey In The Jar

Uploaded .

A very well known traditional Irish song. When I was looking into learning it, I found out that there are several versions of the lyrics, which is interesting. In some versions the singer shoots the Captain and goes to jail for it. In other versions, the singer’s girlfriend sabotages his guns so he cannot shoot the Captain. He goes to jail anyway, but ends up getting out with the help of his brother.

I did the first version. I actually took the lyrics from the Thin Lizzy/Metallica version, but I changed the name Molly to Jenny (both names have shown up in various versions). Jenny rhymes better with some of the words.
