Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers-American Girl w/lyrics

Well she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinking that there
Was a little more to life somewhere else

After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
Yeah, and if she had to die tryin'
She had one little promise she was gonna keep

Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

Well it was kinda cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by
Out on 441, like waves crashin' on the beach

And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it's so painful, something that's so close
And still so far out of reach

Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl
