American Girl

American Girl
(Thomas Petty)

Well, she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinking 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 trying
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 kind of cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
She could see the cars roll by out on 441
Like waves crashing on the beach
And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God, it's so painful
It's something that's so close
But still so far out of reach

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

Oh, ho
Oh, ho
Oh

Oh yeah, all right
Let's take it easy baby
And make it last all night
Oh yeah, all right
Let's take it easy baby
Oh, let's take it easy now, now
Oh yeah, all right
She was an American girl
