Whiskey in the Jar je proslulá irská lidová píseň o loupežníkovi (zpravidla odehrávající se v pohořích Cork a Kerry), kterého zradila manželka či milenka. Tuto píseň především proslavila svojí předělávkou irská rocková skupina Thin Lizzy. Text písně se s různými verzemi liší, typická verze začíná:

As I was a-walkin round Kilgary Mountain
I met Colonel Farrel and his money he was countin',
I rattled me pistols and I drew forth me saber,
Sayin' "Stand and deliver, for I am the bold deceiver!"
Musha rig um du rum da, / Whack fol the daddy O,
Whack fol the daddy O, / There's whiskey in the jar.[1]

Píseň nahrálo mnoho hudebních skupin a interpretů, například The Dubliners, The Pogues, Peter, Paul and Mary, The Seekers, The Highwaymen, Roger Whittaker, Clancy Brothers a Tommy Makem, The Irish Rovers, z českých kapel potom například punková skupina Píča. Dále některé skupiny převzaly cover verzi od Thin Lizzy, jsou to například Pulp (1995), Smokie, Metallica (1998, za svou verzi dostali cenu Grammy) nebo Belle & Sebastian (2006).
