                Mary Jane's Last Dance – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 
Mary Jane's Last Dance (1993)
(Tom Petty)

From: "Greatest Hits [2008]"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some basic patterns that are useful for the song. There are
many subtle variations here and there. Use them or leave them out – 
I’m sure Petty and Campbell also play it a little different every
time they play it.

Well, she moved down here at the age of 18
    D                           Am
She blew the boys away - It was more than they'd seen
Am                      G
I was introduced and we both started groovin'

You never slow down - you never grow old
    Am                     G
I'm tired of screwing up - tired of going down
D                 Am
Tired of myself - tired of this town

Oh my my - Oh hell yes
D                 Am

The nightfall will be coming soon

Am         G
Oh my my - Oh hell yes
    D                  Am
You got to put on that party dress
       Am          Am7        G
It was too cold to cry when I woke up alone
  D                      Am
I hit my last number and walked to the road

The lyrics on the chorus are wrong. It should say "one more time to KILL* the pain", not "feel* the pain" Jesus son, you've never done any drugs before have you?
