TOM PETTY


American Girl Lyrics

Well, she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinkin'
That there was a little more to life somewhere else

After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
And if she had to die tryin'
She had one little promise she was gonna keep

O yeah, all right
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

Well, it was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by
Out on 441 like waves crashin' on the beach

And for one desperate moment
There he crept back in her memory
God it's so painful when something that's so close
Is still so far out of reach

O yeah, all right
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

I'm glad he won't let Michelle Bachman use this song! Bachman can go jump off a very tall bridge right along with her neanderthal way of thinking!

I read a quote from Petty denying that a student's suicide was the inspiration. He said that cars rushing by his California apartment were the inspiration but that urban legend lives on.

I can't believe Tom Petty won't allow Michelle Bachmann to use this song. Just because she's anti gay rights, anti equal rights for women, anti choice, anti universal health care, anti USA (govt).
