There's Whisky in the Jar-o
The last time I was in Dublin, around 3 years ago, I spent a very pleasant afternoon sampling Guinness with my brothers-in-law in few of Dublin's fine pubs prior to ending up in the pub beside the statue of Philip Parris Lynott -a son of Crumlin.
Here are a couple of versions of his most famous song one from the Lizzy themselves and one from Hazeldine an Americana band from Albuquerque.
I think Phil may have been partial to the occasional Guinness but on this occasion he had whisky in his jar-o
I've gone for the two alternative spellings as per the albums
Thin Lizzy - Whisky in the Jar
Hazeldine - Whiskey in the Jar
