    Post a music question #1

    Whiskey in the jar by metallica

    As I was goin´ over
    The Cook and Kerry mountains
    I saw the Captain Farrell
    His money he was countin´
    I first produced my pistol
    And then produced my rapier
    I said stand and deliver
    Or the devil he may take ya

    What do the words in bold mean?

    Re: a music question #1

    produced = took out [from a pocket/from a holster]

    "Or the devil may take you" = I'll kill you. The line is written in this way to provide scansion. "He" is not necessary.
