Rory Gallagher - 'Tattoo'd Lady' (From Irish Tour)

[Verse 1]
Tattoo'd Lady
Bearded baby
They're my family
When I was lonely
Something told me, where
I could always be

[Verse 2]
Where I could
Wish for pennies
If you got any
You'd meet me down
At the shooting gallery
You know I'm a
Fair ground baby
Wonder what made me
Fall for the pearly queen

[Chorus]
Well I spent my youth
Under canvas roof
As I roamed from town to town
I'm not fooling
When I say I got no schoolin'
Never like the class bell sound

[Chorus 2]
From inside the caravan
I hear the fairground band
Sounding good as they can be
You know I can't be found
But if you look around
Tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn
Oh yeah...

[Solo]

[Verse 3]
Now hear it on the loud speaker say
The fire eater is a real fine sight to see
You know he's a death cheater
Some kind of central heater
Be sure to save a seat for me

[Verse 4]
Let me tell you 'bout wicked Sadie
She's no baby
The law came and tried to close her sideshow down
But soon she had the D.A. cheering
The police chief wearing
Her garter for a crown

[Chorus]
I spent my youth
Under canvas roof
As I roamed from town to town
I'm not fooling
When I say I got no schoolin'
Never like the school bell sound

[Chorus 2]
From the caravan
I hear the fairground band
Sounding good as they can be
You know I can't be found
But if you look around
Tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn
Yeahh...

[Verse 1]
Tattoo'd Lady
Bearded baby
They're my family
When I was lonely
Something told me, where
I could always be

[Verse 2]
Where I could
Wish for pennies
If we had any
You'd meet me down
At the shooting gallery
Fair ground baby
Wonder what made me
Fall for the pearly queen
Tattoo'd lady...



Το μακρινό 1966 ο Rory Gallagher δημιουργούσε τους Taste. Η μπάντα έμεινε ενεργή μέχρι το 1970, χρονιά στην οποία διαλύθηκε. (Επανήλθε το 1996 χωρίς τον Rory, αλλά αυτό είναι μία άλλη ιστορία). Ο Rory Gallagher ξεκίνησε προσωπική καριέρα με πρώτο δίσκο το ομώνυμο album το 1971.

Τρία χρόνια αργότερα "έβγαλε" το "Irish Tour '74". Η ηχογράφηση έγινε στις 29 Δεκεμβρίου 1973 στο Μπέλφαστ, στις 31 Δεκεμβρίου και την πρωτοχρονιά του 1974 στο Δουβλίνο και στις 5 Ιανουαρίου στο Κορκ.

Rory Gallagher - 'Irish Tour '74'
Ανάμεσα στα τραγούδια του δίσκου βρίσκεται και ένα από τα πιο αναγνωρίσιμα όχι μόνο του Rory, αλλά και ολάκερης της δεκαετίας. Πρόκειται για το "Tattoo'd Lady", το οποίο σας παρουσιάζουμε σήμερα. Πριν από ένδεκα χρόνια, τον Απρίλιο του 2011, το "Irish Tour '74" κυκλοφόρησε και σε "οπτική" μορφή, DVD και Blu-ray...

Δελτίο τύπου: «In 1974, award winning film maker Tony Palmer followed Rory Gallagher and his band on their tour of Ireland. The subsequent movie was released in cinemas to great critical acclaim and has gone on to be accepted as one of the great rock films.

Now for the first time the film has been lovingly restored and remastered from the original footage and is being reissued on DVD and released for the first time on Blu-ray.

There is a massive improvement in both sound and picture quality over the original DVD release and finally Gallagher fans can get to see the film as it was meant to be, capturing Rory, his music, the period and the place to perfection.»
