Gallagher, Rory - All Around Man Lyrics

I ain't no doctor, I ain't no doctor's son,
But I'll fill your prescription,
Till the real doctor comes,
Till the real doctor comes.

I ain't no sailor, ain't no sailor's son,
But I'll be your navigator,
Till the marines hit town,
Till the marines hit town.

I'm a handyman, an all around man,
I'm a handyman, all around man,
And when your husband comes,
That's when the handyman's gonna scram.

I ain't the DA, ain't the DA's son,
But I'll talk to the jury,
And I'll see justice done.

Handyman, I'm a handyman,
An all around man, all around man.

I ain't no astronaut,
From Cape Kennedy I don't come.
Just step inside my rocket ship,
I'll take you circling round the sun.

We'll head off for Pluto, Venus and Mars,
Step inside, baby, I'll take you very far.

I'm a handyman, an all around man,
An all around man, an all around man,
And when your husband comes,
That's when the handyman is gonna scram.

  25. Cynthia Marston

  26. james bradshaw

    I thank God for my very good luck, I with several on my real family brothers were at this gig, I smuggled a large bottle of whiskey into this gig, I stuck the neck of the bottle down on to my suede cowboy boots, pulled my jeans down over my boots and walked from under the motorway bridge where we had parked our van, my brothers went ahead of me and as I began to walk with the whiskey bottle sinking deeper down in to my right leg boot, as I tried to walk up the steps at front of the concrete hall I could not bend my knee and it now felt like my leg was caught in a vise, the pain was almost unbearable, just then bouncer man came charging towards me, I thought that my cover was blown and this was going to be even more painful happening for me. The kind bouncer lifted me up like a baby, he pushed people out of the way and carried me all the way up to near the front of the stage, he forced 2 other people out of their seats, the bounder demolished the back of the seat in front then set me down and allowed me to rest my bad leg with bottle of whiskey on the broken seat in front. all during the gig the bouncer man keep an eye on me, came over several times to ask me how I was feeling, I told him just great, I could not tell him that I was in hell with pain in my whiskey bootleg, My brothers were sitting over the other side of the hall and when there was a quiet moment they would shout over to me asking for the whiskey bottle, I had to ignore them otherwise the bouncer would have found out. When the gig was over and after most of the people had left, my new Guardian Angel bouncer man came over and lifted me up like a child, carried me back through the hall and over to where I was parked. I was in so much pain that I may not have properly thanked this very kind-hearted man for all that he did for me. It took a long time before I could let my brothers cut open the bottom of my jeans, the whiskey bottle was glued to the side of my leg and after a while I managed to remove the bottle only to find that crest of the bottle was tattooed on to the side of my leg and stayed there for the next day. Some days later I was emptying out my pockets and found my unused Rory Gallagher concert ticket, I had got in without having to show my ticket. My message to this very generous, caring and the very kind bouncer is thank you a million but you have no idea of the greatest pain that you made me suffer, old nick could not have caused me any more suffering if he tried

    jak mak

    Great bootleg whiskey story . Did you make any bootleg tapes of the gig? 😁

  27. tommaguzzi 1

    Some people don't like this??????

    Linda Smith

    Don't see HOW!! :O

    Dale Nelson

    Dont look at the thumbs who cares what idiots think


    Those are Addicted to commercialization who can't see beyond hammered musicians by marketing gurus .. Rory never sold himself

  28. james bradshaw

    There was never anyone like Rory and they never will. Rory was one of a kind, as the very great Phil Lynott said, he was True Blue, Irish Blue . I can recall almost every moment of the many gigs I saw Rory and his boys live in action and on the stage.

  29. Rick Pettit

    Take a few minutes and watch this human hurricane in action, The Master Musician Rory Gallagher and his boys going to town at full speed, there never was/is and never will be anyone like the great Rory. I heard from a very reliable source that God had to have a word with Rory, Phil & Garry are playing 7 nights a week in the Kingdom, God has to remind them about the day of rest,

    Scorpio rising

  41. Phil Rossner

    This is SO awesome! I saw him in '76 in Victoria, BC. Never seen any vid of Rory playing blues harp, though... SO cool! What an amazing talent he was... and so humble. They don't make them like Rory anymore!

  42. 9PWSS Camel

    How in the name of God has this 11 minutes of brilliance from Rory and band only had 16k views. Sad really when computer driven dross is viewed tens of millions of times.

    Angelika T.

    9PWSS Camel

    Somehow, I had never seen this clip before. It's maybe the best I've seen on here.
    Everyone in the band is clicking on this. Amazing ensemble performance. "On the piano", Mr. Lou Martin.... LOU Martin. De'Ath & Gerry were a highly underrated R section in my mind. Just an amazing post, thank you
