D Bma As I was going over the Cork'n'Kerry mountains G D A I saw (a) Captain Farrell and his money he was counting. D Bm I first produced my pistol, and the produced my Wager. G D A Said stand and deliver, for the Devil he may tak' Ye, G Bush a ring domma do domma day Work for me Daddy 'o G Work for me Daddy 'o D A D there's 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 willing (or weary) I went to Molly's chamber Takin' my money with me and I never knew the danger For about six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell I jumped up, fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels Chorus Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin' And some men like ta hear a cannon ball a 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.. Chorus and fade ............................................................................ I can't Swear to this absolutely but the lyrics are as near as i get.
