lyrics

As I was going over The Appalachian Mountains
I saw The Captain Farrell, and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol, I then produced my saber
I said "Stand an deliver. Or The Devil, he may take ya!"
I took all of his money, and it was a pretty penny
Yeah I took all of his money, and I brought it home to Holly
She swore that she'd love me. No, never would she leave me
But The Devil take that woman! For you know she tricked me easy

Musha-rin dadum do, darum da-oh yeah!
Whack fol de daddio!
Whack fol de daddio!
There's moonshine in the jar-o

I retired to my chamber, for to take a slumber
I dreamt of the gold and silver yeah, you know it was no wonder
Holly she took my pistols, and filled them up with water
Then she sent for The Captain Farrell, seeking to have me slaughtered
And it was the early morning, before I set out to travel
And the guards, well they surround me; along with The Captain Farrell
I first produced my pistol; for she stashed away my saber
But I couldn't shoot through that water, so as a prisoner I was taken

Musha-rin dadum do, darum da-oh yeah!
Whack fol de daddio!
Whack fol de daddio!
There's moonshine in the jar-o

Now some men like the fishin'
Some men like the fowlin'
Some men like to hear, to hear 'a the cannon balls a-roarin
But me, well I like sleepin
Especially in my Holly's chamber
But here I am in prison
Here I am with a ball and chain, yeah!

Musha-rin dadum do, darum da-oh yeah!
Whack fol de daddio!
Whack fol de daddio!
There's moonshine in the jar-o
Musha-rin dadum do, darum da-oh yeah!
Whack fol de daddio!
Whack fol de daddio!
There's moonshine in the jar-o
