Tom Petty:
	American girl
	The apartment song
	Breakdown
	The best of everything
	A change of heart
	Depending on you
	A face in the crowd
	Feel a whole lot better
	I won't back down
	In the dark of the sun
	Into the great white open
	Learning to fly
	Love is a long road
	Rebels
	Running down a dream
	Southern accents
	The waiting
	Yer so bad

=====================================================

        LOVE IS A LONG ROAD - Petty
        ===========================



Intro:  B  AE E  DA  B  DA  E  DA 


B                 D  A
 There was a girl in town 
E                D        A
 She said she cared about me
B                  D  A
 She tried to make my world
E                   D         A
 The way she tought it should be
G             D         A
 Yeah we were desperate then
G              D            
 To have each other to hold
 A   B  E      B          E
 But love is a long, long road



 There were so many times
 I would wake up at noon
 With my head spinning 'round
 I would wait for the moon
 And give her one more chance
 To try and save my soul
 But love is a long, long road



 Yeah it was hard to give up
 Some things are hard to let go
 Somethings are never enough
 I guess I only can hope
 For maybe one more chance
 To try and save my soul
 But love is a long, long road


        RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM - Petty
        ============================


         E                 
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
          D                   E
I had the radio on. I was drivin'
                                             D             
Trees flew by, me and Del was singin' little runaway 
      E
I was flyin'


CHORUS
         A       G      E
Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream
     E           G       A
That never would come to me
A            G    E   E          G      A 
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
A       G      E
Runnin' down a dream


I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last tree days the rain was un-stoppable 
It was always cold, no sunshine


CHORUS


I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine


CHORUS

        THE APARTMENT SONG - Petty           
        ==========================


A
I used to live in a two-room apartment
                   E     A     
Neighbors knockin' on my wall

Times were hard I don't wanna knock it 
                E       A
I don't miss it much at all


CHORUS
D   A    E     A    D       A             E 
 Oh yeah I'm alright I just feel a little lonely tonight
D      A  E            A  D       A             E        A 
 I'm okay most of the time I just feel a little lonely tonight


I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
Lately I get a faraway feeling
And the whole thing starts again


(CHORUS and 2nd verse)

			When you're gone,  Oh when you're gone

		A
		Now I got to say,  That it's not like before

              A Face In The Crowd - Tom Petty

it goes something like this  :-


              Em              C
Before All of this ever went down
           Em               C
in another place, another town

         D                  Am
you were just a face in the crowd
         D                  Am
you were just a face in the crowd
           Bm             Am                   Em
out in the street walking around a face in the crowd


out of a dream, out of the sky
into my heart, into my life
And you were just a face in the crowd
out in the street, thinking out loud
A face in the crowd

=================================================================

INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN by TOM PETTY from the album of same name
 
The intro and first few bars of the verse seem to be the following:
 
    Em  Em? Em7 Em6
 
e---0-----------------
b---0-----------------          The chord names are probably a bit 
g---0-----------------                dodgy but - hey. If you play this 
d---2----1---0--------                on an acoustic 12 string (like TP's 
a---2----2---2---4----                nice Martin one ...) it sounds ok.
e---0----0---0---0----
 
 
 
Em    Em?            Em7           Em6
Eddie waited till he finished high school
Em         Em?        Em7      Em6
He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
Am       Am/G               Am/F#     Am/G
He met a girl out there with a tattoo too
    G          F    C       G C G
The future was wide open.
 
Em         Em?               Em7        Em6
They moved into a place they both could afford 
Em         Em?                Em7         Em6
He found a nightclub he could work at the door
Am        Am/G            Am/F#          Am/G
She had a guitar and she taught him some chords
    G   F       C          G C G     G C GD
The sky was the limit.
 
G        C          D(sus4)  G          Em       D     Am
Into the great wide open,    under them skies of blue
G          C          D(sus4)    G         F     Em     A
Out in the great wide open,    a rebel without a clue.
 
 
(instrum: play the intro riff and end with G then A - I think)
 
The papers said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the charts
The sky was the limit.
 
His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled.
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single."
The future was wide open.
 
Into the great wide open, under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.
 
Into the great wide open,  under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.

final flourish: G C G   G C G.

~Subject: TAB: Learning To Fly (Tom Petty)


This is a pretty simple one 1 guitar plays the simple chord pattern

F  C  Am   G
