Rory Gallagher played a lot of different styles of music, but probably the furthest from his normal style was a country-rock or rockabilly song, wherein he mentioned "Deputy Dawg"

Does anybody remember this song? Googling "Rory Gallagher country-rock Deputy Dawg" didn't conjure it up.

    This thread (forum.rorygallagher.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=864) suggests it's "Cluney Blues", but I can't confirm. The only recording I can find is strictly instrumental. – Aaron May 12 at 5:44
  • Thanks, that led me to the answer ("My Baby, Sure") which was an "extra" track on "Against the Grain" (as was "Cluney Blues"). – B. Clay Shannon May 12 at 22:54

Aaron's hint led me to the answer. The song is "My Baby, Sure" and it is, like "Cluney Blues" an extra track on some copies of the excellent album "Against the Grain."

It is definitely different from anything else I've ever heard Rory do, and he obviously had a lot of fun with it. You can hear it here.
