Gallagher, Rory - Toredown Lyrics




I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found.

I went to the river to jump in.
My baby showed up and said, "I will tell you when."

Well, I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found.

I love you babe with all my heart and soul;
Love like mine will never grow old.
Love you in the morning and in the evening too.
Every time you leave me I get mad with you.

I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found.

I love you baby with all my might;
Love like mine is out of sight.
I'll lie for you if you want me to.
I really don't believe that your love is true.

I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found.

I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
Well, I'm tore down, I'm almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby can't be found.

Gallagher, Rory Toredown Comments
  1. Liam Mccarron

    Co Donegal certainly knows how to produce musicians of absolutely quality. This man should be in the RRHOF. All you would be bands this is how it's done. Makes Clapton look ordinary.

  2. Don Rutter

    4:00 Rory breaks into a solo with such powerful sonics that it literally blows the microphone clean off the mic stand.

    Good looking guy, good voice, excellent Guitar work

  17. Broke Dick Dawg

    This man is why I picked up the guitar. It wasn't Jimi and it wasn't Stevie. A man, his guitar, his amp and the truth. I had to follow.

  18. jak mak

    @ 6:33 nearly gets the drummer to miss a beat... good recovery though.

  19. Zacattack

  27. R Ewing

    Someone ask Jimi Hendrix what it felt like to be the greatest guitar player in the world? Jimi said " I don't know, ask Rory Gallagher."

    Saw Rory at a local pub in 79/80.Phil Manning (Aussie blues guitar legend)was opener and was great.But Rory blew the roof off.I think he got about three or four encores.Still probably the best gig I’ve been to and I’ve seen zillions.

  51. Joseph Antonio

    He was BADASS!!!

  52. Masterofsparks Hwy6

    I had an old beat up 64 strat looked just about as riugh, but something about that particular ne, the wood, the age on the pickups, I dunno it just sounded the way I wanted it to always, someone stole it hope ya tripped over it and broke your fool neck asshole, whoever you was lol. Rory needs to be much more introduced to young players, I barely hear his name unless I'm somewhere like here. He's far too important. To me at least, and many of you I'm sure

    jak mak

    Sorry to hear about your strat, Rory's was stolen after a gig but he was lucky he got it back, hope yours turns up sometime, sucks when you got it all dialled in and everything, good luck, hope the thief shits razor blades. 😉

  53. Alan Hunter

    55 dislikes ..........really!,! I guess they’re from folks who normally immerse themselves in the tranquil calming melodic sounds emitted at a Slipknot concert ........or something

  67. Rick Jones

    I can't believe anyone actually disliked this... Rory was the king of the stratocaster

  68. Christopher Kay

    I saw him in 1970 in Grand Rapids Michigan. Messin' with the kid. Pure power blues cranked out by young musicians playing to an emerging generation. Incredible. Sad ending to Rory.

  69. luckyfamilyman

    Raw talent no gimmicks

  70. Klaus Toth

    Great raw and powerfull. One of the late gteats. Gone too soon but his blues live on for the planet.

  76. Peter Karel Kraus

    Sounds like Green River by CCR , at the start.

  77. Stephen Prater

    I love this guy, no gimmicks, just amp and guitar!

  78. Aggelos Kontis

    Why most of you say that he was underated? He was not. For the fans of this music he was one of the best. He will always be in our hearts.

  91. nige wills

    How can 42 people not like this????? Ffs!,,

  92. Peter D Morrison

    Jimi Hendrix was once asked what it was like to be the world's greatest guitarist. He replied, "I don't know, ask Rory Gallagher".

    creamforever2

    Where and when did jimi say that?

    Peter D Morrison

    @creamforever2 might just be an urban myth. But they did both play the Isle of Wight festival in August 1970. I was there, only 16, and they were both awesome.

    Kelven Dyson

    Peter D Morrison ....OMG!!! WHAT WAS THAT LIKE!!! YOU GOT TO SEE HENDRIX IN ONE OF HIS LAST FEW GIGS BEFORE HE DIED!! PLEASE PLEASE...WHAT WAS IT LIKE!

    Peter D Morrison

    Kelven Dyson everything was running late. Some of the crowd had even given up and gone back to their tents. I stayed - I'd been sleeping in the arena, under the stars, all weekend, so I moved right up to the front. When he came on stage and started playing it was kind of unreal.
    Despite all the delays, he played a full set of 18 tracks. You can find the set list here...
    https://www.setlist.fm/widget?setlist=bd6bd62

    jak mak

    Yeah, Urban myth but nice anyway.

  93. Fixx Torque

    What a talent, and what a waste, alcohol and drugs doctor prescribed,48,much too young to die

  94. Deteroblix

    I see his silver Dallas Rangemaster treble boost box on the speaker cab behind him. Brian May from Queen publicly has said many times that it was Rory who intro'd him to the Rangemaster box which give Brian his signature sound...

  95. Batphink Reynolds

    Rory ROCKED,Taken way too early and so under rated as a guitar player ans singer ans writer,What a talent and smoking tight band. Rest In Peace Rory!

  96. bonkey dollocks

    That tatty guitar could do with a repaint

  97. Delmar Favre

    Look at that pentina on that strait pure honest wear

  98. The Irish Wanderer

    This is what a good cup of Irish tea will teach you go on our rory.

  99. The1WhoKnowsTheTruth

    Rory was a bad mofo.  Guy could play like nobody's business.  Only a few noticed.

  100. buickmonte

    I wonder where his Strat is now??

    golfito

    His brother Donald owns it.
