A PETTY LAMENT

Oh Hell no, oh my my
Why did Tom Petty have to die?
He only got better as time went by
Why did Tom Petty have to die?
No last chance to dance to him,
The stage is empty, the lights have dimmed
A black cat moaned, an Angel sighed,
A lot of us cried when Tom Petty died
God damn it, no! it cant be so
We werent ready for you to go
Your songs defined our Southern lives
With lyrics as sharp as granddad’s knife
And melodies we understood
Rhythms of southern neighborhoods
Your songs were all about our friends
And falling in and out of love again
Anger, hate, love and pain
All come to life in your refrains,
Songs about hurting and making amends
Songs about lovers running away
Or making a stand,, and deciding to stay
Bye bye oh farewell,
Tom will have no more tales to tell
