Subject: YOU GOT LUCKY by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers


You Got Lucky
        (words & music by Tom Petty and Mike Campbell)


Basically the intro synth plays:

   Am                       Dm          G

E -5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|-5--5--5--5--3--3--3--3-|
B -5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|-6--6--6--6--3--3--3--3-|
G -5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5-|-7--7--7--7--4--4--4--4-|
D -7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7-|-------------5--5--5--5-|
A ------------------------|------------------------|
E ------------------------|------------------------|

(Intro chords)
You better watch what you say
You better watch what you do to me
Don~t get carried away
Girl, if you can do better than me
Am
Go
      F
Yeah, go
But remember
C            Am
Good love is hard to find
C            Am
Good love is hard to find
        F
You got lucky, babe
        G
You got lucky, babe
             (Intro chords)
When I found you

(Intro chords)
You put an end on my tear
And then you turn your eyes away
If you don~t feel complete
If I don~t take you all of the way
     Am
Then go,
      F
Yeah, go,
But remember
C            Am
Good love is hard to find
C            Am
Good love is hard to find
        F
You got lucky, babe
        G
You got lucky, babe
             (Intro chords)
When I found you


The guitar solo is (during the intro chords):

   Am                    Dm     G         Am                 Dm      G

E --------------------------------------|---------------------------------|
B --------------------------------------|---------------------------------|
G --------------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D ------5--7----------------------------|------5--7-----------------------|
A -7~---------7~---5--3--5~---3-2--3--5-|-7~---------7~---5--3--2--0------|
E --------------------------------------|----------------------------3~~--|

The (~) means to sustain the note, the (~~) means to sustain and keep it
warply tremoloed.

     Am
Yeah go,
      F
Just, go,
But remember
C            Am
Good love is hard to find
C            Am
Good love is hard to find
        F
You got lucky, babe
        G
You got lucky, babe
             (Intro chords)
When I found you


After this the song pretty much goes on through the intro chords, the final
Mike Campbell (sorta) solo is:

   Am                    Dm     G       Am                   Dm   G

E ------------------------------------|-----------------------------|
B ------------------------------------|-----------------------------|
G ------------------------------------|----------------5--7--7b-----|
D ------5--7--------------------------|------5--7-------------------|
A -7~---------7~---5--3--5~-----------|-7~---------7~---------------|
E ------------------------------------|-----------------------------|


The song fades out on this and that is about it.
