Las penas con Whisky son menos...

Whisky in the jar es una canción tradicional irlandesa que cuenta la historia de un bandido que es traicionado por una mujer. En la década de los 50 la grabaron varios artistas, pero en los 70 Thin Lizzy la lanzó a la fama. Posteriormente, en 1998, Metallica hizo una versión que la llevó a un público más amplio.

Acá la versión de Thin Lizzy:

Acá la de Metallica en vivo:

¡¡¡Y un video que representa la historia en Lego!!!

El video oficial de la versión de Metallica se puede ver en: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oKLq1JD3vU

La letra que sale en www.lyrics007.com es la siguiente:

As i was going over
The Kork and Kerry mountains
I saw Captain Farrell
And his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol
And then produced my rapier
I said "Stand and deliver
Or the devil he may take you"

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
No Never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman
For you know she treat me easy


Mush a ring dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy'o
Whack for my daddy'o, there's
Whisky in the jar, o

Being drunk and weary
I went to Molly's chamber
Taking my Molly 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 fishing
And some men like fowling
And some men like to hear
The cannonballs are roaring
Me - I like sleeping
Specially in my Molly's chamber
But here i am in prison,
Here i am with a ball and chain, yeah
