American Girl

Tom Petty

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 and if she had to die, tryin’ she, had one little promise she was gonna ke~ep

   Oh yeah, alright
   Take it easy baby
   Make it last all night
   She was, an American girl

Well it was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
Yeah she could hear the cars roll by, out on
441, like waves crashin’ on 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 re~ach
