New song off the Greatest Hits LP.

MARY JANE'S LAST DANCE (INDIANA GIRL)
Tom Petty

Intro/Verses: Am-G-D
Chorus: G-A-G-A-G
Use G Harp

She grew up in an Indiana town 
Had a good lookin' Mama who was never around
But she grew up tall and she grew up right 
With them Indiana boys on an Indiana night

She came down here at the age of 18
She blew the boys away - It was more than they'd seen
We were introduced and we both started groovin'
She said I dig you baby - But I gotta keep movin' - on - she's movin' on

Chorus:
Last dance with Mary Jane - One more time to feel the pain
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again

Well I don't know - but I've been told
You never slow down - you never grow old
I'm tired of screwing up - tired of going down
Tired of myself - tired of this town
Oh my my - Oh hell yes  - Honey put on that party dress
Buy me a drink and play me a song
Take me as I came - cause I can't stay long

Chorus

There's pigeons down on Market Square
She's standing there in her underwear
Looking out of a hotel room
The nightfall will be coming soon
Oh my my - Oh hell yes - You gotta put on that party dress
It was cold when I woke up alone
I played my last nickel and walked to the road

Chorus

By: Tom Petty

Intro:  Am (hammer on index finger)  G    D   Am

Am                G    
She grew up in an Indiana town
      D                     Am
Had a good lookin' mama who never was around
       Am                    G
But she grew up tall and she grew up right
          D                  Am
With them Indiana boys on an Indiana night


Well she moved down here at the age of 18
She blew the boys away, it was more than they'd seen
I was introduced and we both started groovin'
She said, "I dig you baby but I got to keep movin'"
...on, keep movin' on

Chorus:
D                  
Last dance with Mary Jane
                                A
One more time to kill the pain
D   
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm
                          A
Tired of this town again 

Well I don't know but I've been told
You never slow down, you never grow old
I'm tired of screwing up, I'm tired of bein' down
I'm tire of myself, I'm tired of this town
Oh my my, oh hell yes
Honey put on that party dress
Buy me a drink, sing me a song,
Take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long

Repeat chorus:

There's pidgeons down in Market Square
She's standin' in her underwear
Lookin' down from a hotel room
Nightfall will be comin' soon
Oh my my, oh hell yes
You've got to put on that party dress
It was too cold to cry when I woke up alone
I hit the last number, I walked to the road   

Repeat chorus and fade:
