I.M. Rory Gallagher

There came a time on those summer nights
When a free house had been found,
And a cheap stereo rigged with strobe lights
That froze each moment in your mind.

You just knew when the crowd had waned
And the wasters had long gone
That soon the wised-up boys who remained
Would put Rory Gallagher on.
