Rory Gallagher

RUE THE DAY
Calling Card - 1976 (remastered 2000)

You seemed to be like a real good idea,
At the time, at the time.
You lifted me up to some higher ground,
Then you knocked me down on the ground.
But I rue that day like I don't know how.

You picked me up right out of the tide,
My eyes weren't open wide.
I was blind,
But I see much better, much better now.

Well, I roll with the punches, I sway with the curves,
I walked on a tightrope, didn't lose my nerve.
Stayed on the canvas, couldn't count me out,
Never threw in the towel, yeah, I saw the fight out and how.
All fifty rounds.

Well, I roll with the punches, I sway with the curves,
I walked on a tightrope, didn't lose my nerve.
Stayed on the canvas, couldn't count me out.
Never threw in the towel, yeah, I saw the fight out and how.

You lifted me up to some higher ground,
Then you knocked me down on the ground.
You lifted me up right out of the tide,
My eyes weren't open wide.
I was blind,
But I see much better, much better now.

You seemed to be like a real good idea,
At the time, don't know why.
But I rue that day like I don't know how,
I rue that day as of now.
I rue that day like I don't know how.
