Rain on the river I'm soakin' wet
Waitin' on friend who ain't come yet
And he might not get here for three or four days
Got to make a little bit go a long way
I've got a blond headed woman who likes to come around
Cute little hippy girl lives in town
Brings a bag a records and she plays 'em 'til dawn
Give me little lovin' then she got to go home
When times are hard
When you start feelin' low
Let yourself go
When the river's risin' and the world feels cold
Let yourself go
Let yourself go
I got a 442 sittin' in the sun
Well it's been ten years since she used to run
Man she was a beauty in '69
But there ain't no more comin' down the line
When times are hard
And you start feelin' low
Let yourself go
When the river's risin' and your world feels cold
Let yourself go
Honey let yourself go

Totally w you buddy
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that his last two albums (Mojo and Hypnotic Eye) are right up there as some of his best.
We miss you Tom🙏
RIP, Tom.

Yup, I wish it was mine... It's sitting up in Georgetown, near where the Peak to Peak Highway branches off of Highway 6, in prime Brown and Rainbow Trout country... Myself, from '79 to '83, I had a '70 Cutlass 'S' Hardtop Coupe with '12-Bolt' rear-end and SuperG-60 slicks — the best off-line acceleration you can imagine! then a '68 Cutlass with 4-speed Hearst, and a '73 Cutlass Supreme with posi and hi-per tranny, (all were 2-doors), but I WISH I had put my foot into it in a 4-4-2! Each of those beasts I did have had WAY too much torque and the perfect power-to-weight ratio, therefore optimum traction; whereas lighter Mustangs and Camaros simply sat and spun-out, I was already long gone! But the 4-4-2? I heard it was nearly equal to the Corvette Stingray in street-racing glory...

Good Morning, The Worm, Your Honor, May We Present You With The Car In Question... 
'69 4-4-2
4-4-2
Surely, races were won — all in good fun — but more importantly, for some: there's a good chance that more leg was raised in the back seat of this '69 4-4-2 than most mortal men can even imagine in a lifetime... ~Sigh~ ... That's a fact, Your Honor. All Hail the 4-4-2!
This guys are getting better and better, evolving into something more mature and fresh at the same time.
Oh man!  Taking a road trip in two days, thanks for reminding me to find this CD and make sure it's in the car.

"I've been driving all night, my hand's wet on the wheel . . . "

 

No?

My transducers are working hard.  Thank god for my soft-clipping circuit.
ah do like the way Tom growed up.m his post willburys stuff is great.
TP&HB's sloppy slide guitar always makes me smile (misquoteing unclehud, Cheers mate)
This is superb.  Where have I been ? :)
 
There's a fairly regular occurrence of Tom Petty at RP.

That's a good thing :)

miss you so much, Cynaera...


love this song...
 
love it!  Man, that "Got a 4-4-2 sittin in the sun...been ten years since she used to run...Man she was a beauty back in '69...but there ain't no more comin down the line..." means a lot to me.  Know EXACTLY what he means there.  Tom has a way of tossing out stuff I can relate to, all the way back to high school, when he was first woven into the tapestry of my life with his eternally cool, "Break down — go ahead, give it to me!"

Nobody should get tired of the album of the century!
PETTY is just incredible!

...and the incredible guitar work!
GOD HIMSELF SINGING and PLAYING!

I really like Tom petty
Unfortunately there must be some kind of breakdown and TP leaves us free falling as he never comes around here no more. Maybe next tour we include a stop in Ottawa.

Had this cd on rotation in the car for two weeks straight. It's jolly good. 
I love this TP album!
Prepping for the pasture in a lounge somewhere off of Ventura Blvd. Tom?
bring it back from Mexico, Tom.

Perhaps it's due to the boring & predictable melody? {#Yawn}

If you have the capability, the album was also released in the Blu-Ray format, with hi-res surround audio.

 
Hey!  Got my own 24bit FLAC version, too.  LP was free!

"Baby, please don't go..." I love it when Campbell quotes classic lines. Awesome album.

(kwik off the mark with this album rp! on yaz!)


Tom petty and the heartbreakers have always made some good music.{#Dancingbanana_2}
That harmonica player isn't messing around, is he?  Petty's great in this, but I'm much more interested in that harp.

decent cut right here...I like this more than the other new stuff I have heard.
{#Bananajam}This is a terrific cut from a terrific album.  I like that they recorded it with no overdubs, in a 'live' environemnt.  Good TP!  {#Guitarist}
