Whiskey in the Jar

This is a song from part of my heritage. While my mother's father was from Germany, my father's family was english, irish, and scottish. This is from the irish strain, as it were. This song was first recorded and became a big hit for Luke Kelly and the Dubliners. Later, it was a hit again for the irish band Thin Lizzy. Later, again, it was a big hit for Metallica. My arrangement is closer to the original, though I change the meter of the refrain. But the lyrics are nearly identical to the original. It is the story of a highwayman and how his nefarious deeds turn on him.

I did this song in one take. One take for the guitar and one for the vocal.

The song is "Whiskey in the Jar."
