Rory Gallagher - For The Last Time Lyrics




You've done me wrong,
For the last time,
You've sung your song,
Now I'm going to sing mine,
Out loud, so loud,
Like the roaring sea.

You've played around,
For the last time,
You've shown your claws,
Now I'm going to show mine,
Watch out, I'll be about,
In the night.

You ran around,
Since the very first day,
You've had your moment,
Now I'm gonna have my play,
So long, I'll be gone,
In the night.

You put me down,
For the very last time,
I hit the floor,
But I got up on the count of nine,
Goodbye, don't cry,
When I'm gone.

  2. Nikolaos Mosxakis

    VERY GOOD MENY YEARS GOW NIKOS TARANTELLA TAVERNA XERSNISOS KRETA

  3. Γιωτα Ευαγγελιου

    .. 2020..happy babe.. Rory say dont come back...

  4. Mighty Koura

    2020 anyone listening?

    Sonja Martens

    YES !!!!

  5. Mithu Gaha

    He is one of the fusion of blues and rock and roll . Forever be my best Rory Gallagher.

  6. Riley McGill

    He could have been so famous if he played for a great band or had a great singer or song writer with him. Amazing, incredible, enthusiastic, and mind bending solos is what he produces. But when the actual song isn't there I cant get behind it. Guitar doesnt do it for me alone

    Ezio Auditore

    Great songwriting lol.. Listen I Fall Apart, I'm Not Awake Yet, Daughter Of Everglades, Walk On Hot Coals, Tattoo'd Lady, A Million Miles Away, Calling Card, Moonchild, Secret Agent, Edged In Blue, Fuel To The Fire, Shadow Play, Bad Penny, Philby, Big Guns, Easy Come Easy Go, Kickback City, Continental Op, Slumming Angel and tell this again.

    Ezio Auditore

    By the way he had a great band and he was a decent singer.

    Riley McGill

    @Ezio Auditore when I say great band. I mean him only playing guitar for a great band. Maybe doing back up singing or have a couple of his own songs. His guitar playing is great but I just dont think the songs are that great. Just imo. He could have used a singer and prob used the same band. The song writings not there for me. Very normal chord progressions. I think hes playing is incredible I just dont think the songs are very good. When you play the same 4 chords over and over kinda makes you not want to listen till the guitar solo hits

  7. kenneth furlong

    wow the voice is reminiscent of Clapton when he was younger kinda cool but best ever I play better than this guy lol and stevie ray gone was just repeating himself for a long time try albert lee

  8. geraki koraki

    ΒΑΛΤΕ ΤΟ ΑΓΑΛΜΑ ΤΟΥ RORRY ΣΤΟ ΓΗΠΕΔΟ ΤΗΣ ΑΕΚ ΤΟ ΑΠΑΙΤΟΥΜΑΙ

  9. Danny Boyle

    He made that fender more than talk.who said white men can,t play the blues!

  11. Adrian Rijkeboer

    Cork had a ROCK STAR SLEEP EASY RORY XXX MARGO ❤❤❤💋

  12. Alan Lloyd

    I like his rock songs better. The slow blues or traditional blues numbers are fairly boring to my ears.

  25. steffen

  26. steffen

    ICH höre es und, immer noch voll Begeisterung dieweil ich einfach gute Musik liebe - scheiss egal wie alt diese ist ! ich mag ja auch Chopin und Bach 🤣

  27. BadPenny78

    Somebody explain to me why there are so many comments in Greek in every Rory Gallagher video here on YouTube :) The proportion of Greek comments is just so prominent. Was Rory Gallagher somehow especially well-liked in Greece?

    jak mak

    Rory's huge in Greece, they'd make him a god if they could, he played back in the early 80s when the country was going through some bad times, a lot of Greek fans remember the New philadelph stadium gig and Rory continued playing despite the riot police outside the stadium running around cracking skulls so he is part of Greek folklore now and they won't have a bad word said against him...that's the short version of the story.

    BadPenny78

    @jak mak Thanks for sharing this piece of information! I wouldn't mind hearing the long story one day either ;)
    I just couldn't help but wonder why the Greeks loved Rory Gallagher out of all blues musicians. He is great, no doubt! Definitely one of my very favourite musicians, but he is also somewhat unknown in many many countries. The way I first heard about him was probably by reading some article where KK Downing mentioned Rory as his early influence. And to tell you the truth, I haven't really seen Rory's name being mentioned many times since then! Not even when I visited Cork once. It just seems like he has a fairly small but devoted fan group.

    jak mak

    @BadPenny78 you're welcome, as for the long story I'm sure some one of the Greek fans on here could enlighten you especially the Athens crew who were at the actual gig at the time.. watch this space.
    And yeah Rory flew under the radar as far as the mainstream bubblegum music industry were concerned, to the best of my knowledge he never cut any singles off his albums after Taste as he wasn't too interested in all that and it was always his music and the fans first, he left the business side of things to his brother/manager Donal. Anyway enjoy the gift that is Rory's music.

  28. Adrian Rijkeboer

    RORY WAS IN A LEAUGE OF HES OWN A ONE OF A KIND SLEEP EASY MARGO 💚💚💚👄

  29. vodoo 57

    The kind of song you need to rest after listening to...He is a spiritual son of Hendrix . Hope they have fun jammin together there....

  30. Rebecca J

    Jesus that solo 1:30 in 💕 hits different

  31. Eric

    Putain ce que ça fait du bien de prendre sa dose de Rory ... j'ai eu l'immense privilège de voir Rory en concert au moins quatre fois en France au pavillon Baltard et à chaque fois c’était un kif de fou .... Simplicité , proximité , humanité et cette vieille strato écaillée ... Et merde , ce que c’était bon ... C’était pas formaté avec lui . Je me souviens d'un concert ou il y avait tellement de bonne vibes , , il devait se sentir bien et il jouait , on réclamait et il continuait , quand on est sortis , on a réaliser que le concert avait duré presque trois heures

    Like the roaring sea

    You've played around
    For the last time
    You've shown your claws

    Watch out, I feel about
    In the night

    You went around

  47. tasosrory

    Ξεχωρίζει από τους υπόλοιπους καλλιτέχνες επειδη είχε, στη κυριολεξία, "παντρευτει" τη κιθάρα του. Τίποτε άλλο δε τον γέμιζε. Γι αυτό και ο Μεγαλύτερος κιθαρίστας όλων των εποχών. Εάν δείτε και στα λάιβ, κυκλοφορεί με τη στρατοκαστερ επάνω του. Ας τον αναπαυει ο Θεός !

  48. Libby Sanchez

    Karin Storer

    our typical example of how to think transparency is an easy way to create a picture of all his guitar music and voice is still ALIVE and you can be able to listen to his ķind of his songs and make them feel more comfortable with Rory and more importantly what he wants us together to make for your life as well my soul is still alive and not finished yet.the but not a soul cares for that many times I asked you that I am looking for someone to share òñ my try to save à Mr.Rory Gallagher collection but never an absolute answer.oh well worth the time is precious to man hopefully you are not just a fan but like me I think you understand that the in deep always been a 2 own story and make his guitar sing we appreciate it. KARIN

    FUCK THE HALL OF FAME!!! THE BEST OF THE BEST ARE NOT IN THERE!!! IT'S A FUCKIN' OLD BOYS CLUB THAT ULTIMATELY MEANS NOTHING!!! HE'LL REMAIN A LEGEND, IF WE KEEP HIM OUT OF THAT ELITIST, MEANINGLESS INSTITUTION!!!! RORY WAS A TRUE GREAT.......THAT'S WHY HE'S NOT IN THERE BUT MADONNA IS......... THAT ALONE SHOULD RAISE A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT THE 'INTEGRITY OF THAT AWARD/TITLE!!! RORY WASN'T A GLORY-HOUND, SO I WOULD GUESS THAT HE WOULD RATHER HAVE HIS DIGNITY INTACT, INSTEAD OF BEING LUMPED IN WITH THE CORRUPT, BIASED JOKE THAT IS the rock and roll hall of FUCK-WITS!!!!

    🙈🙉🙊✌✌✌✌👏👏👏

  80. andrea sepultura

    Such a tender mucician.

  81. Troy Funk

    I saw him once on DON KIRSHNER'S ROCK CONCERT. When Kirshner introduced his live segment, he talked about Rory being a gentleman..."just don't get between him and his guitar." As near as I know, he seldom if ever played any guitar other than his '61 Strat, so that's probably not an overstatement!

  82. Anastasios Fuentes

    This was the first Rory's song I ever heard. I was 11 at that time and I was stunned from the first listen. Lots of love to Ireland from Greece!!

  83. Virgin Voltz

    May Rory and Jimi smile down on us that play guitar! Laugh and wish us well 🤘

  84. Laurie Fairbairn

    Greatest guitarist of all time with out a doubt!!

  89. Craig Chapman

    I think Rory knew he was paying it forward from the start for the rest of us,. I have been listening to Rory since a teen or even a tween since his first Album, soundtrack to my life for good and bad. From a bad penny in my pocket to six figures, thanks Rory.
