{D}She couldn't help {E7}thinking that there was
a {G}little more to life {A}somewhere else
After all it was a {D}great big world
{G}with lots of places to {Em}run to
{A}And if she had to die   tryin' she   had one little promise she was gonna keep

Chorus:
{G}Oh yeah,{A} allright, {D}take it easy baby {Bm}make it last all night{G}
She was {A}  an American {D}girl

Verse 2:
Well it was kinda cold that night
She stood alone on the balcony
Yeh, she could hear the cars roll by,
out on four-fortyone like waves crashing on the beach
And for one des'rate moment there
he crept back in her memory
God it's so painful when something that's so close is still so far to reach. **

(Chorus)

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some.
Tell me why you wanna lay there, revel in your abandon.
     
Honey, it don't make no difference to me.

One of those things you gotta feel to be true
     
Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some.
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped, tied-up, taken away, and held for
ransom.
     
Honey, it don't really matter to me.
Baby, everybody's had to fight to be free.
You see, you don't have to live like a refugee.
No, you don't have to live like a refugee.
Baby, you don't have to live like a refugee.

Tom Petty - Here Comes My Girl


The main progression for the INTRO and VERSE of the song goes like this
Use a 1st finger barre at 2nd fret, move (not slide) it up to 4th fret.
When you play it with the song, you'll get the feel of it:

  A                   B/A            Amaj7               B/A
E-------------------|--------------|-------------------|-------------------
B-2-----------------|-4-----4--5--7|-5-----------------|-4-----------------
G-2-----------------|-4-----4------|-6-----------------|-4-----------------
D-2-----------------|-4-----4------|-7-----------------|-4-----------------
A-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0|-0--0--0------|-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0|-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0
E-------------------|--------------|-------------------|-------------------

VERSE 1:
A
  You know, sometimes, I don't know why
  B/A                               Amaj7       B/A
  But this whole town just seems so hopeless
A                                             B/A
  I ain't really sure but it seems I remember the good times
                         Amaj7             B/A
  Were just a little bit more in focus
A                                   B/A
  But when she puts her arms around me
       Amaj7               B/A
  I can somehow rise above it
A                                      B/A
  Yeah man when I got that little girl standing right by my side
                 Amaj7                        B/A
  You know I can tell the whole wide world to shove it

CHORUS:
                    E      A                  E      A
  Hey here comes my girl        Here comes my girl
F#m            B (normal B chord)
  Yeah and she looks so right She is all I need tonight

VERSE 2:
Every now and then I get down to the end of a day
I'll just have to stop, ask myself, "What've I done?"
It just seems so useless to have to work so hard
And nothin' ever really seem to come from it
And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it

CHORUS and then BREAK (see bottom)

VERSE 3:
Yeah every time it seems there ain't nothin' left no more
I find myself havin' to reach out and grab hold of somethin'
Yeah, I just catch myself wanderin', waitin', worryin'
About some silly little things that don't add up to nothin'
And then she looks me in the eye, says, "We gonna last forever,"
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it
No, because this feels so good and so free and so right
I know we ain't never goin' change our minds about it

CHORUS then END 
(the ending is just the first and last measures of the VERSE: A to B/A)

BREAK: 
This break repeats three times, and the fourth time just
continues the same vamp on the E and A strings, to VERSE 3.

Verse1:
E
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
            D                 E
I had the radio on, I was drivin'

The trees went back, me and Del were singin'
          D                  E
Little Runaway, I was so blind

Chorus:        D       G       E
Yeah, Runnin' down a dream
 E           G       A
Never would come to me
D          G       E
Workin' on a mystery
E          G         A
Goin' wherever it leads
D          G       E
Runnin' down a dream


Verse2:
E
I felt so good, like anything was possible
       D                        E
Hit cruise control, and rub my eyes

Last three days, the rain was unstoppable
        D                       E
(It) was always cold, no sunshine

Repeat Chorus
Break: It is just C (riff) D (riff) E (riff)  Play 2X

Verse3:
E
I rolled on, the sky grew dark
            D                        E
I put the pedal down, to make some time

There's something good, waiting down this road
          D                 E
I'm pickin' up, whatever is mine

Repeat chorus 2X, then Break part, and add SOLO!

E          022100
Asus4      002200
Bsus/addE  224400

Lyrics:
She's a good girl, loves her mama
loves Jesus and America too
She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis
loves horses and her boyfriend too

It's a long day livin' in Reseda
there's a free-way runnin' through the yard
and I'm a bad boy, cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

Chorus:
And I'm free, I'm free fallin'

All the vampires walkin' through the valley
move west down Ventura Boulevard
And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows
All the good girls are home with broken hearts

Repeat Chorus

Do this little thing:

E -4----4-2---0-2-0--

right before the backing vocals go "Free fallin, yeah I'm free fallin" twice
after the chorus right before the next verse.

I wanna glide down over Mulholland
I wanna write her name in the sky
I wanna free fall out into nothin'
Gonna leave this world for awhile

Chorus

Right before they do the chorus a second time, they play the chord forms as
barres:

E5 A5 B5 A5

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.

Tom Petty - Mary Jane's Last Dance


Intro:  Am (hammer on index finger)  G    D   Am

Am                G    
She grew up in an Indiana town
      D                     Am
Had a good lookin' mama who never was around
       Am                    G
But she grew up tall and she grew up right
          D                  Am
With them Indiana boys on an Indiana night

Well she moved down here at the age of 18
She blew the boys away, it was more than they'd seen
I was introduced and we both started groovin'
She said, "I dig you baby but I got to keep movin'"
...on, keep movin' on

Chorus:
D                  
Last dance with Mary Jane
                                A
One more time to kill the pain
D   
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm
                          A
Tired of this town again 

Well I don't know but I've been told
You never slow down, you never grow old
I'm tired of screwing up, I'm tired of bein' down
I'm tire of myself, I'm tired of this town
Oh my my, oh hell yes
Honey put on that party dress
Buy me a drink, sing me a song,
Take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long

Repeat chorus:

There's pidgeons down in Market Square
She's standin' in her underwear
Lookin' down from a hotel room
Nightfall will be comin' soon
Oh my my, oh hell yes
You've got to put on that party dress
It was too cold to cry when I woke up alone
I hit the last number, I walked to the road
