Thread Name: Whiskey in the Jar
Subject: RE: Whiskey in the Jar
It is called thus inasmuchas the last line of the refrain states, "there's whiskey in the jar." When I think of the song, "Whiskey in the jar," I recall the little trick which allowed Peter, Paul & Mary to get this song past the censors back in the 1960's. They simply titled it "Gilgarra Mountain." The Smothers Brothers got little past the censors, the censors got the Smothers Brothers instead.
