Bad Penny
Rory Gallagher Lyrics


Well, like a bad penny you have turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,
Well, you double-dealed me, baby and I broke like a shell.

Like a bad penny you've sure lost the glow
But I'm out of reach, your smile's sure gone cold.
Well, it can't ever be like it was then,
Well, don't you fool with me, baby,

Don't you mess with my plans.
Some stormy nights, your memory haunts me,
You won't go away.
Well, like a bad penny you have turned up in the change,

Try to fit into the picture, you can't get inside the frame.
I think you know I'm still sore, but I'm on the mend,
Times sure have changed, it won't happen again.
Well, like a bad penny spins around and around,

Well, you won't know what's gone wrong when it all falls down,
You got to learn from now on to stop playing games,
You ought to keep on moving, you got to spin on your way.
Some lonely nights, I hear you calling,

Won't you go away?
Well, like a bad penny you have turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,

Well, you double-dealed me, baby, I cracked like a shell.

"Bad Penny"
Well, like a bad penny you've turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,
Well, you double-dealed me, baby and I broke like a shell.
Like a bad penny you've sure lost the glow
But I'm out of reach, your smile's sure gone cold.
Well, it can't ever be like it was then,
Well, don't you fool with me, baby,
Don't you mess with my plans.
Some stormy nights, your memory haunts me,
You won't go away.
Well, like a bad penny you have turned up in the change,
Try to fit into the picture, you can't get inside the frame.
I think you know I'm still sore, but I'm on the mend,
Times sure have changed, it won't happen again.
Well, like a bad penny spins around and around,
Well, you won't know what's gone wrong when it all falls down,
You got to learn from now on to stop playing games,
You ought to keep on moving, you got to spin on your way.
Some lonely nights, I hear you calling,
Won't you go away?
Well, like a bad penny you have turned up again,
You're in my sights, there's a mist on my lens.
I think you know how it was when I tripped and fell,
Well, you double-dealed me, baby, I cracked like a shell.

This version sounds more like this even thought there’s a verse I don’t catch (if someone knows) :

Like a bad penny,
You’ve turned up again
You're in my sights,
There’s a mist on my lens
I think you know how it was
When I tripped and fell,
You double-dealed me, baby,
And I cracked like a shell

Like a bad penny
Spins around and around
You won't know what's gone wrong
When it all falls down
You got to learn from now on
To stop playing games
Ought to keep on moving
You got to spin on your way

Some lonely nights,
Your memory haunts me,
You won’t go away

Like a bad penny,
You’ve sure lost the glow
But I'm out of reach
Your smile's sure gone cold
Can’t ever be back it was then
Don’t mess with me, baby
My heart (???)

Some lonely nights,
Your memory haunts me,
Won’t you go away ?

Like a bad penny,
You’ve sure lost the glow
I'm out of reach
Your smile's sure gone cold
It can’t ever be like it was then
Don’t mess with it, baby
My heart (???)

Rory was NEVER underrated, not by his real fans. He wasn't looking for fame or monetary gain and would not allow singles to be released. If you are only now discovering this amazing man, that doesn't mean he wasn't around. For those of us who did know of Rory, it has been a life-long love affair with those beautiful Blues which he played to perfection.

Taliesin

what an amazing man. I had a sneaking suspicion that his flame grew bright and burnt out fast, unfortunately it did :(

pikpik

i just discover this talented man,and i tell you what,one of the best decision i made and i can't describe how glad i am i did,now he will always be my top fav of all time!

@Lars-Ivar Carlsén when Jimmi Hendrix was asked how it feels to be the best guitarist in the world he aswered: "I really don't know, ask Rory Gallagher"

Amen!
