American Girl
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers

Lyrics

Well she was an American girl
raised on promises.
She couldn't help thinkin' that there was a little more life somewhere else.
After all it was a great big world
with lots of places to run to,
yeah, and if she had to die tryin' she
had one little promise she was gonna keep.
Oh yeah,
all right.
Take it easy baby.
Make it last all night.
She was an American girl.
Well it was kinda cold that night.
She stood alone over 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 is so close
is still so far out of reach.
Oh yeah,
all right.
Take it easy baby.
Make it last all night.
She was a' American girl!
Oh, oh, ah!
Oh, oh, yeah!
