Today's submission will be taking ya back to 1973. What a band and What a tune!

I used to watch these chaps on the Old Grey Whistle Test.

Freekn awesome to see the boys in all their splendor.

Creds to the Irish folk for creating the tune. Thin Lizzy's cover brought it to attention to the rest of the world :)

Lyrics as follows 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 o'er and deliver or the devil he may take ya

Musha ring dumb a do dumb a da Whack for my daddy-o Whack for my daddy-o 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

Musha ring dumb a do dumb a da Whack for my daddy-o Whack for my daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar-o

Being drunk and 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 Musha ring dumb a do dumb a da Whack for my daddy-o Whack for my daddy-o There's whiskey in the jar
