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'

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

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

TP sang the soundtrack of my life until his death. I was thankful to have seen him early on and several times in the later years. Buried Treasure remains one of the coolest radio shows ever and he is more than deserving of the XM channel that bears his name. Long Live TP!
Third comment. New Old Song

I think I remember on the radio. Nice tune.
Didn't recognize Tom Petty and had to look it up...
I'm no Petty fan, so to speak, but I didn't realise that this was him/them. Quite like this - 8
