Subject: RE: Whiskey in the Jar
>> why then is a song about a highway man with a bitch of a girlfriend >> called "Whiskey In The Jar"?

Coz as long as you still have some whiskey in the jar it don't matter.

This is a good 'ol, good time, drinkin song. Further attempts to analyse/deconstruct/interpret it are, as our american cousins so cutely put it, horseshit.
