TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS


Swingin' Lyrics

Well, she was standing by the highway
In her boots and silver spurs
Gonna hitchhike to the yellow moon
When a Cadillac stopped for her

And she said, "Hey, nice to meet you
Are you goin' my way?"
Yeah, that's when it happened
The world caught fire that day

And she went down swingin'
Yeah, she went down swingin'

Well, she was over twenty-one
In trouble with the law
And it didn't faze her none
She called her mother-in-law

And said, "I need a little money
I knew I could count on you"
After that night in Vegas
And the hell that we went through

We went down swingin'
Like Benny Goodman
Yeah, we went down swingin'
Yes we did

Moonlight on the interstate
She was 'cross the Georgia line
Looked out the window feeling great
Yeah, it had to come in time

And she said, "I'm never goin' back"
She said, "At last I'm free"
I wish ma could see me now
She'd be so proud of me

Yeah, she went down swingin'
Like Glenn Miller
Yeah, she went down swingin'
Like Tommy Dorsey

Yeah, she went down swingin'
Like Sammy Davis
She went down swingin'
Like Sonny Liston
