Subject: ONE STORY TOWN by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers


One Story Town
	(words & music by Tom Petty)


The intro is:  B5* (the bass occasionally plays an A and hammers on a B note,
you can hear it in the song).

The intro riff is:

E -----------|------------------||B -----------|---------------7--||G -9--8h9p8--|-----9--8---------||D -----------|-7----------9-----||A -----------|------------------||E -----------|------------------||
Please escuse the vulgar misinterpretations of the lyrics: F#5 Yeah, I~ve been standing up E5 I~ve been breaking free F#5 E5 B5* I don~t want fate handed down to me F#5 Yeah, I~ve been moving on E5 Try another town F#5 Times ain~t changin~ nothing E5 B5* Take a look around D5 A5 G5 I~m lost in a one story town D5 A5 G5 Where everything~s close to the ground G5 A5 Yeah, same shit goes down G5 A5 Nothing turns around G5 A5 B5* It~s a one story town She was over seventeen when I held her to her word Had to push her luck Thought she couldn~t breathe No it didn~t hurt me when she had to leave She had a far away feeling Wasn~t part of me I~m lost in a one story town Where everything~s close to the ground Yeah, same shit goes down Nothing turns around It~s a one story town Instrumental: A5, A5, A5....B5 Yeah, I~m lost in a one story town Where everything~s close to the ground Yeah, same shit goes down Nothing turns around It~s a one story town Ending: B5* Those high guitar parts for the chorus are: X Y
E -----17--14---------|-5h7p5----------8h10p8-|B -15----------15-----|-----------------------|G -----------------16-|-----------------------|D --------------------|-----------------------|A --------------------|-----------------------|E --------------------|-----------------------|
-X- is played sometimes during the first half of the chorus and -Y- is played after that part where Petty sings -same shit goes down-. I hope this has been help towards you. Oh yeah! For the instrumental Mike's guitar just plays:
A -10--12--|E ---------|
And that's about it.
