LOVE IS A LONG ROAD - Petty
===========================

Intro: B AE E DA B DA E DA


[B] There was a girl [D]in [A]town
[E] She said she car[D]ed about [A]me

[E] The way she tought [D]it should [A]be
[G] Yeah we were [D]desperate [A]then
[G] To have each o[D]ther to hold
[A]But [B]lov[E]e is a [B]long, long [E]road
There were so many times
I would wake up at noon
With my head spinning 'round
I would wait for the moon
And give her one more chance
To try and save my soul
But love is a long, long road

Yeah it was hard to give up
Some things are hard to let go
Somethings are never enough
I guess I only can hope
For maybe one more chance
To try and save my soul
But love is a long, long road


RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM - Petty

[A]Workin' on a [G]myste[E]ry, [E]goin' where[G]ver it [A]leads
[A]Runnin' [G]down a [E]dream


I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last tree days the rain was un-stoppable
It was always cold, no sunshine


CHORUS


I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine

THE APARTMENT SONG - Petty
==========================


[A]I used to live in a two-room apartment
Neighbors knockin' [E]on my [A]wall
Times were hard I don't wanna knock it
I don't miss it [E]much at [A]all


CHORUS
[D] Oh [A]yeah [E]I'm al[A]right[D] I just [A]feel a little [E]lonely tonight
[D] I'm ok[A]ay [E]most of the t[A]ime[D] I just [A]feel a little [E]lonely to[A]night


I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
Lately I get a faraway feeling
And the whole thing starts again


(CHORUS and 2nd verse)

~Title: FEEL A WHOLE LOT BETTER (Byrds,Gene Clark)
                [A]The reason why,  Oh I can't say
                I had to let you [E]go babe, And right a[F#m]way   [B]
                After what you [A]did,  I can't stay [D]on      [Bm]

                        [Bm]And I`ll probably [A]feel a whole lot [E]better
                        When you're [D]gone  [E]   [A]

                [A]Baby for a long time,  You had me believe
                That your love was all [E]mine, And that's the way it would [F#m]be   [B]
                [A]But I didn't know,  That you were puttin' me [D]on   [Bm]
                        [Bm]And I`ll probably [A]feel a whole lot [E]better
                        [E]When you're [D]gone,  [E]Oh when you're [A]gone
                [A]Now I got to say,  That it's not like before
                And I'm not gonna [E]play, You're game any [F#m]more   [B]
                [A]After what you did,  I can't stay [D]on   [Bm]
                        [Bm]And I`ll probably [A]feel a whole lot [E]better
                        [E]When you're [D]gone  [E]     [A]
                        [Bm]I`ll probably [A]feel a whole lot [E]better
                        [E]When you're [D]gone,  [E]Oh when you're [A]gone
                        [E]Oh when you're [A]gone         [G]   [A]   [G]   [A]   [G]   [A]

A Face In The Crowd - Tom Petty

it goes something like this :-


Before All of [Em]this ever went d[C]own
in another [Em]place, another to[C]wn
you were [D]just a face in the [Am]crowd
you were [D]just a face in the [Am]crowd
out in the [Bm]street walking [Am]around a face in the [Em]crowd
out of a dream, out of the sky
into my heart, into my life
And you were just a face in the crowd
out in the street, thinking out loud
A face in the crowd

=================================================================

INTO THE GREAT WIDE OPEN by TOM PETTY from the album of same name

The intro and first few bars of the verse seem to be the following:

Em Em? Em7 Em6

e---0---------------------------------------------------|
b---0---------------------------------------------------|          The chord names are probably a bit
g---0---------------------------------------------------|                dodgy but - hey. If you play this
d---2----1---0--------                on an acoustic 12-| string (like TP's
a---2----2---2---4--------------------------------------|                nice Martin one ...) it sounds ok.
e---0----0---0---0--------------------------------------|


Em Em? Em7 Em6
Eddie waited till he finished high school
Em Em? Em7 Em6
He went to Hollywood, got a tattoo
[Am]He met a [Am/G]girl out there with[Am/F#] a tattoo [Am/G]too
The [G]future was [F]wide [C]open.   [G]  [C]  [G]

Em Em? Em7 Em6
They moved into a place they both could afford
Em Em? Em7 Em6
He found a nightclub he could work at the door
[Am]She had a [Am/G]guitar and she t[Am/F#]aught him some [Am/G]chords
The [G]sky [F]was the [C]limit.     [G]  [C]  [G]      [G]  [C]  [GD]

[G]Into the [C]great wide [D(sus4]open,    [G]under them [Em]skies of [D]blue  [Am]
[G]Out in the [C]great wide [D(sus4]open,    a [G]rebel with[F]out a [Em]clue.  [A]

(instrum: play the intro riff and end with G then A - I think)

The papers said Ed always played from the heart
He got an agent and a roadie named Bart
They made a record and it went in the charts
The sky was the limit.

His leather jacket had chains that would jingle
They both met movie stars, partied and mingled.
Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single."
The future was wide open.

Into the great wide open, under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.

Into the great wide open, under them skies of blue
Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue.

final flourish: G C G G C G.
