Runnin' Down A Dream Lyrics

by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
I had the radio on, I was drivin'
The trees went by, me and Del were singin'
Little runaway, I was flyin'

Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

Felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last three days the rain was unstoppable
And it was always cold, no sunshine

Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

I rolled on, the sky grew dark
I put my pedal down to make some time
And there's something good waitin' down this road
And I'm picking up whatever is mine

Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream

Yeah, runnin' down a dream
Never would come to me
Workin' on a mystery
Goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down a dream
