Run For Cover is an album by Gary Moore, released in 1985, and is often considered as Gary Moore's breakthrough album.

The album includes a remake of the hit single "Empty Rooms" (UK #23), one of Moore's biggest successes, and top 5 single "Out in the Fields", the album's biggest selling single.

The album features many of Moore's friends including Deep Purple bassist/vocalist Glenn Hughes, Paul Thompson of Roxy Music and Phil Lynott from Thin Lizzy. Lynott and Moore trade vocals on "Out in the Fields", while Lynott sings vocals on "Military Man", an old Grand Slam track, alone. Lynott also provided vocals for a re-recording of the Thin Lizzy classic "Still in Love with You" (on which Moore originally played guitar); the track was initially only issued as a single B-side but is included on later remastered versions of the album. "Out in the Fields" is a song about the turmoil in their native Ireland.
