Key: C
C                     Am 
As I was a-goin' over Gilgarra mountains 
  F                          C            Am 
I met Colonel Pepper and his money he was counting 
  F                          C          Am 
I drew forth my pistol and I rattled my sabre 
        F                        C            Am 
Saying 'stand and deliver, for I am a bold deceiver' 


G G7 Musha ringum duram da C Whack fol de daddy-o F Whack fol de daddy-o C G C There's whiskey in the jar
The shining yellow coins did sure look bright and jolly I took the money home and I gave it to my Molly She promised and she vowed that she never would deceive me But the devil's in the women for they never can be easy -Chorus- When I awoke between the hours of six and seven Guards were standing 'round me in numbers odd and even I flew to my pistols, but alas I was mistaken I fired off my pistols and a prisoner was taken -Chorus- They put me in jail without a judge or jury For robbing Colonel Pepper in the morning so early They didn't take my fist so I knocked down the sentry And I bid a long farewell to that cold penitentiary -Chorus- Some take delight in fishing and bowling Others take delight in carriage a-rollin' I take delight in the juice of the barley Courting pretty women in the morning so early
