O'Boyle Gilgarry Mountain a/k/a Whiskey in the Jar (14) RE: Gilgarry Mountain a/k/a Whiskey in the Jar 30 Jun 98

I should probably post this in the "what are you listening to?" thread but lets not forget the Dublin based '70s rock band Thin Lizzy's version. With the more violent verse ...."Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber/ Taking my molly with me and I never knew the danger/ At around six or maybe seven in walked Captain Farrell/ I jumped up grabbed my pistols and I shot him with both barrels." There are other differences and cool Phil Lynott guitar riffs. It was featured in the film "In the name of the father" and is probably on the soundtrack. Otherwise it is available on their greatsest hits album. Its not folk in the strict sense of the word, but the wonderful thing about folk is that it is not strict.
