[Intro] (chords play along with 3rd and 4th repeats)
This is also played during the chorus
    Am           C         G           Am       Am

  Am           G            F          C
I haven't seen Sandy, Angry Johnny, or Mary
  Am             G                   F               C
I heard they got married, might have had a couple of babies
     Am           G            F            C
They traded their memories for Fairview and Acres,
     Am              G          F                C        
they never played no pinball or get out past the breakers

    Am  C         G      Am
But not me pretty ba-a-a-by,
   Am             C               G               Am
We still love Tom Petty songs and driving old men crazy
    Am  C            G       Am       
And not while Little Eden is waiting
   Am             C             G              Am  
So you sing me a slow song, and I'll drive you crazy

Tonight,        yeah

    Am    G                     F             C
But all I want is for you to be all right and satisfied
Am           G                  F           C 
Brothers and sisters, know that any time or late at night
       Am          G           F                C
If you call I will answer, I'm open ears though tired eyes
          Am                G          F          C
While the world closed it's arms on us now

      Am         C               G      Am 
Can I get a hung witness, pretty ba-a-a-by?
   Am             C               G               Am
We still love Tom Petty songs and driving old men crazy

And not while Little Eden is waiting
   Am            C              G              Am 
So you sing me a slow song, and I'll drive you crazy

...tonight and I say it's all right,
          Am             G             F            Am
Tell your papa you'll be home when the good feeling dies

(soloing in outro is the same as in the bridge)
F       F   C     G     F       F

Hm, for some reason half of the solo was erased when this was posted. I submitted an update so hopefully it will show soon...

One suggestion: when you do the Am on the chorus, try going from the Am to a C and then right back to the Am chord. That sounds more like what happens in the song.

(G starts here) Ba-a-a- (Am) -by / (C) (Am) I still love...

And all you have to do is move your ring finger:

v v
Am |x02210|
C |x32010|
^ ^

Easy fix to add some more fun to the song.

Oddly enough, since they tune a whole step down, they play this in C#. In earlier live performances, Brian just plays barre chords, but in recent years, he puts a capo on the fourth fret and plays F#m, E, D, and A. I would just put a capo on the first fret and play it in C, but that's me. Good tab, thanks for sharing!
