I'd like to move on sure and easy
Like a cat creeps through the grass
And the foreman seems to know me
Cause I found myself at last
And I'm a full grown boy
And there's laughter on the hillside
From voices far away
How'm I gonna tell her that I love her
When this night might be the day
And I'm a full grown boy
Yeah
My mind floats away
Yeah
And I'm changing every day
Can you see her in the fire light
Hear how soft and low she sings
How'm I gonna tell her that I love her
When words don't mean a thing
And I'm a full grown boy

Same songwriter...
 

But the album credits only list Campbell as a writer on "Fault Lines".

Maybe Petty was hogging all the credit, or maybe after all that time he could write a song that sounded just like his bud's writing? I dunno.
OK.  I guess I like the new webpage-player.  Nice to have playlist, comments, and Wikipedia in an adjacent panel, since many RP tunes send me to Wikipedia anyway.

Got to scroll down for lyrics!?   And lose the album cover!?!?

Ahhhhhhhh.  Blessed are we with such first-world problems.

Thank you for playing this!  And thank you even more for playing some of Tom Petty's less commercial music.

It's different, which is a good thing.  Otherwise you get people (usually people who are only familiar with a few songs) saying it sounds like every other song he's done.


Nice, I like it!

It is a nice groove, his vocals diminish the song to me though, but it is his band, so he gets to sing.  Tasty guitar solo, however.
way cool, to my ears its got a Leon Russel-y kind of sound
This album is pretty darn above average, imho. There are four or five notable songs, in addition to "Full Grown Boy", including "Forgotten Man", "Red River", "Fault Lines", and "Sins of My Youth".
NOW I see what my TPATH-smitten peeps saw in them in the day. Cool.
Nice groove.... :-)
 
Much better than that laughable first cut I heard from this effort.

this new Tom Petty song has some really lovely lead guitar work...  marvelous song...  love it...  this new album is fantastic...
