Tom Petty:
	American girl
	The apartment song
	Breakdown
	The best of everything
	A change of heart
	Depending on you
	A face in the crowd
	Feel a whole lot better
	I won't back down
	In the dark of the sun
	Into the great white open
	Learning to fly
	Love is a long road
	Rebels
	Running down a dream
	Southern accents
	The waiting
	Yer so bad

        LOVE IS A LONG ROAD - Petty
        ===========================



Intro:  B  AE E  DA  B  DA  E  DA 


B                 D  A
 There was a girl in town 
E                D        A
 She said she cared about me
B                  D  A
 She tried to make my world
E                   D         A
 The way she tought it should be
G             D         A
 Yeah we were desperate then
G              D            
 To have each other to hold
 A   B  E      B          E
 But love is a long, long road



 There were so many times
 I would wake up at noon
 With my head spinning 'round
 I would wait for the moon
 And give her one more chance
 To try and save my soul
 But love is a long, long road



 Yeah it was hard to give up
 Some things are hard to let go
 Somethings are never enough
 I guess I only can hope
 For maybe one more chance
 To try and save my soul
 But love is a long, long road


        RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM - Petty
        ============================


         E                 
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
          D                   E
I had the radio on. I was drivin'
                                             D             
Trees flew by, me and Del was singin' little runaway 
      E
I was flyin'


CHORUS
         A       G      E
Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream
     E           G       A
That never would come to me
A            G    E   E          G      A 
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
A       G      E
Runnin' down a dream


I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last tree days the rain was un-stoppable 
It was always cold, no sunshine


CHORUS


I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine


CHORUS

(instrum: play the intro riff and end with G then A - I think) The papers said Ed always played from the heart He got an agent and a roadie named Bart They made a record and it went in the charts The sky was the limit. His leather jacket had chains that would jingle They both met movie stars, partied and mingled. Their A&R man said "I don't hear a single." The future was wide open. Into the great wide open, under them skies of blue Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue. Into the great wide open, under them skies of blue Out in the great wide open, a rebel without a clue. final flourish: G C G G C G. ------------------------------------------------------ ~Subject: TAB: Learning To Fly (Tom Petty) This is a pretty simple one 1 guitar plays the simple chord pattern F C Am G The other guitar plays this little riff:
