Rockin' Around (With You)
(Tom Petty and Mike Campbell)

Why be lonely
Why be blue
You got me babe, I got you
And I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you
How I dig rockin' around with you

I was waiting
You came through
You knew no one else will do
And I can't stop thinkin' 'bout you
How I dig rockin' around with you

You know I dig rockin' around
You know I dig rockin' around
You know I dig rockin' aroundback to top
Breakdown
It's all right if you love me
It's al l right if you don't
I'm not afraid of you runnin' away
Honey, I get the feelin' you won't

There is no sense in pretendin'
Your eyes give you give away
Something inside you is feelin' like I do
We've said all there is to say

Baby, breakdown, go ahead give it to me
Breakdown, honey take me through the night
Breakdown, I'm standing here, can you see?
Breakdown, it's all right
It's all right
It's all right

Breakdown, go ahead give it to me
Breakdown, honey take me through the night
Breakdown, I'm standing here, can you see?
Breakdown, it's all right
It's all right
It's all rightback to top
Hometown Blues
Baby can't wait
Baby gotta go
Gonna do a number
On the late night show
Do a little song
Do a little dance
Gonna make the best
Of her big chance

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
Tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues

I got a friend
Got a little girl
Said she's the best
In the whole wide world
Said it so good
Said it's unreal
Might not last
But it's no big deal

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
Tryin' to make the best of
The hometown blues

Baby, save me, save me, save me
With your sweet smile
Honey, I really need your love
To help me kill a little bit o' time

All of the girls
Run with the crowd
They go wild
When the lights go down
They got a little money
Live in a dream
Wanna be the queen
Of their little scene

Don't really matter
If she don't or if she do
Tryin' to make the best of
The hometown bluesback to top
The Wild One, Forever
Well the moon sank as the wind blew
The street lights slowly died
They call you the wild one, said stay 'way from her
Said she could love no one if she tried

But then somethin' I saw
In your eyes told me right away
That you were gonna have to be mine
When the strangest feeling came over me
Down inside no matter what it takes
I'll never get over how good it felt
When you finally held m e
I'll never regret
Baby those few hours
Will grow in my head
Forever

Well it's too bad, but I want you
To know I understand
Yeah, it's been a long time but I don't mind
Yeah, it's all right I understand

Beca use somethin' I saw
In your eyes told me right away
That you were gonna have to be mine
When the strangest feeling came over me
Down inside I knew right away
I'll never get over how good it felt
When you finally kissed me
I'll never regret
Baby those few hours
Will grow in my head
Foreverback to top
Strangered in the Night
Well it was dark at midnight
There was hardly any moon
And no one really saw much
No one was really sure
But something didn't seem right
Something seemed kinda queer
The roar turned into whispers
Everyone stood t here

When the sounds fit the night
Something hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night

Well I didn't see them shotguns
I didn't see no knife
I saw this crazy black guy
With a demon in his eyes
I heard him say white man
I've seen that silver cue
You don't remember me well
But I remember you

When the sounds fit the night
Something hiding from the light
Like strangers in the night

Well the knife just left his fingers
As the black guy took his aim
White guys head exploded
My God how much pain
And then everybody scattered
I heard some woman scream
God damn you old black bastard
You've blown away my dreams

When the sounds fit the night
Something hiding from the light
Like strangers in the nightback to top
Fooled Again (I Don't Like It)
(Tom Petty)

Strange voice on the telephone
Tellin' me I better leave you 'lone
Why don't somebody say what's going on
Uh oh I think I been through this before

Looks like I'm the fool again
Looks like I'm the fool again
I don't like it
I don't like it

You never said you had no number two
I need to know about it if you do
If two is one I might as well be three
It's good to see you think so much of me

Looks like I'm the fool again
Looks like I'm the fool again
I don't like it
I don't like it
Look out!

You never said you had no number two
I need to know about it if you do
If two is one I might as well be three
It's good to see you think so much of me

Looks like I'm the fool again
Looks like I'm the fool again
I don't like it
I don't like it
Look out!

I don't like it
I don't like it
I don't like itback to top
Mystery Man
Don't you hide from me baby
Shame on you
Incognito
Honey you're so cruel
I don't mind
Take my hand
Baby I wanna be your mystery man

Yeah you got ruby lipstick
Rose petal rouge
Dime store jewelry

You know I do, you know I do
Oh you know I do, you know I do

Luna
White light cut a scar in the sky
Thin line of silver
The nigh t was all clouded with dreams
Wind made me shiver
Black and yellow pools of light
Outside my window
Luna come to me tonight
I am a prisoner
Luna glide down from the moon

The clouds are all silver and black
Floating aro und me
Luna come into my eyes
Luna surround me
With black and yellow pools of light
Fall by my window
Luna come to me tonight
I am a prisoner
Luna glide down from the moon

The clouds are all silver and black
Floating around me
Luna come into my eyes
Luna surround me
With black and yellow pools of light
Fall by my window
Luna come to me tonight
I am a prisoner
Luna glide down from the moonback to top
American Girl
Well she was an american girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinkin that there
Was a little more to life
Somewhere else
After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
Yeah, an d if she had to die
Tryin' she had one little promise
She was gonna keep

Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an american girl

It was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
She could the cars roll by
Out on 441
Like waves crashin' in the beach
And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it's so painful
Something that's so close
And still so far out of reach

Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an american girlback to top
