Coming in at # 22 on my favorite rock songs of the 1970's series is Whiskey in the jar, by Thin Lizzy, it's a awesome song, that was also done by Metallica and, the Grateful Dead, it had chart success in Ireland, the UK and, Germany coming in at # 1, 6 and, 7, not sure how it didn't chart in the US. Check out a sample of the lyrics below. As I was goin over the cork and, Kerry mountains. I saw captain Ferrell 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. Some information verified at Wikipedia.
