Rory Gallagher died too young with much still to achieve .

His albums have sold over 30 million copies worldwide.His popularity and output declined in the 1980s due to changes in the music industry and ill health.Gallagher received a liver transplant in 1995, but died of complications later that year in London at the age of 47.




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 glowBut 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.
