Artist: Tom Petty
Album: Southern Accents

Well we come with what was on our backs
Yeah, when the lea ves had died and all turned black
Back when the wind was cold and blew them 'round
When we laid our blankets on the ground
Yeah and I woke up feelin' hungry
Lookin' straight into the sun, and left a cold night on the ground
Like a dog on the run

I fell overboard and washed up on the beach
Yes, let the waves and sand roll over me
I was helped to the home of a young bleached blonde
Who said 'honey I discovered early in life there's ways of getting
Anything I want , some of us are different
It's just something in our blood, there's no need for explanations
We're just dogs on the run'

The room was painted blue and gray
All my meals were served on a silver tray
Oh she would laugh, and light m y cigarettes
She said 'honey, ain't it funny how a crowd gathers around
Anyone living life without a net?
And how they'll beg you for the answers
But it won't ever be enough, there's no way you could ever tell 'em
It's just dogs on the run'

This song is sublime - one of the greatest tunes I have ever heard in my life! Tom Petty is an amazing artist and performer and the Heartbreakers are the greatest band on the planet. PERIOD! If you don't believe me then just go see them and you'll see exactly what a sensation is.
