Letra: Whisky in a Jar

Trata-se de uma música tradicional irlandesa, que ficou marcada na versão do Thin Lizzy no início dos anos 70. É uma das minhas músicas favoritas, e posteriormente o Metalica chegou a gravá-la em seu disco de covers. Vale mais a versão desta maravilhosa banda irlandesa, imortalizada na voz do saudoso Phil Lynott.

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 and deliver or the devil he may take ya


Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
Theres 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 shed love me, never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy


Being drunk and weary I went to mollys 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


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 mollys chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeah

Realmente, foi falha na elaboração da lista. Tenho War e Joshua Tree. Minha esposa tem outros tantos, o fã de carteirinha lá em cala é ela. Eu gosto, mas não é das minhas bandas favoritas.
