Mary Jane’s Last Dance | Tom Petty


<< Go Back

This is a great song from Tom Petty. We play this song in the key of “Am”, and the guitar chart and lyric sheet we use for open mic night and live performances are available below for your reference. If you prefer to use different guitar tabs or chord charts, we can accomodate any variations.


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

Verse:
Am                G
She grew up in an Indiana town
      D                      Am
Had a good lookin' momma 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

Verse:
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 flame
D
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm
                          A
Tired of this town again

Am	G	D	Am (2X)

Verse:
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 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

Chorus

Instrumental

Verse:
There's pidgeons 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 my last number and walked to the road

Chorus

Outro
