Ricordando Tom Petty – Mary Jane’s Last Dance, testo e video ufficiale

Tom Petty moriva tre anni fa. Ho pensato di ricordarlo con la canzone Mary Jane’s Last Dance, con testo e video ufficiale.

In ricordo di Petty.

Tom Petty, vero nome Thomas Earl Petty, era nato a Gainesville (USA) il 20 ottobre 1950-

Chitarrista, cantante e compositore, la sua carriera cominciò nel 1969, ma arrivò al successo 7 anni più tardi con la sua band, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers.

Nel 1987 fondò con George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, i Traveling Wilburys.

Tom Petty si è spento il 2 ottobre 2017, all’età di 67 anni, per arresto cardiaco.

Mary Jane’s Last Dance è un singolo estratto dall’album Greatest Hits di Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers del 1993.

La clip ufficiale, che vide la partecipazione della grande Kim Basinger,  ricevette il premio MTV Video Music Award al miglior video maschile.

Testo : Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Mary Jane’s Last Dance

She grew up in an Indiana town
Had a good lookin’ momma who never was around
But she grew up tall and she grew up right
With them Indiana boys on an Indiana night
Well she moved down here at the age of eighteen
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”
Last dance with Mary Jane
One more time to kill 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, I’m tired of goin’ down
I’m tired 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
Last dance with Mary Jane
One more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin’ in and I’m
Tired of this town again
There’s pigeons down on 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
Last dance with Mary Jane
One more time to kill the pain
I feel summer creepin’ in and I’m
Tired of this town again
