Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (alternately styled Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers) is an American rock band from Gainesville, Florida. Formed in 1976, the band originally comprised Tom Petty (lead singer, guitar), Mike Campbell (lead guitarist), Ron Blair (bass guitar), Stan Lynch (drums), and Benmont Tench (keyboards). The band largely maintained this lineup, with a few exceptions. In 1981, Blair, tired of the touring lifestyle, left the band. His replacement, Howie Epstein, stayed with the band for the next two decades. In 1991, Scott Thurston joined the band as a multi-instrumentalist—mostly on rhythm guitar and second keyboards.

Baby can't wait 
Baby gotta go 
Gonna do a number 
On the late night show 
Do a little song 
Do a little dance 
Gonna make the best 
Of her big chance 

Don't really matter 
If she don't or if she do 
Tryin' to make the best of 
The hometown blues 

I got a friend 
Got a little girl 
Said she's the best 
In the whole wide world 
Said it so good 
Said its unreal 
Might not last 
But it's no big deal 

Don't really matter 
If she don't or if she do 
Tryin' to make the best of 
The hometown blues 

Baby, save me, save me, save me 
With your sweet smile 
Honey, I really need your love 
To help me kill a little bit o' time 

All of the girls 
Run with the crowd 
They go wild 
When the lights go down 
They got a little money 
Live in a dream 
Want to be the queen 
Of their little scene 

Don't really matter 
If she don't or if she do 
Tryin' to make the best of 
The hometown blues
