Bad Penny
by Rory Gallagher

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.

@Joe Driver Go ask anyone at your local bar who Eric Clapton is and everyone there will tell you, then see how many of them know who Rory is.

Joe Driver

He sold 60 million records!

Gary Crispens

Totally agree. Wish he got more airplay.

TheGodEmperorofMankind

He was better than Hendrix.

Rory Gallagher is one of the artists whose music never gets old and never tires you. All of his albums are amazing. He is one of the best, though really underrated, rock artists. 

At least, Greeks appreciate his music.

If you’re on here his music is not underrated...........lots of people are not in the know...............I like to think of them as future fans and what an experience they will have. Sla’n go foil a Rory ta tu in far. Emmet

That tells something. The cradle of democracy... Interesting now that Swedish authorities have decided that the era of antiquity should be removed from teaching in primary school. Reason; the new curriculum takes a lot of time to adapt to the new inhabitants ...
