One Story Town
	(words & music by Tom Petty)


The intro is:  B5* (the bass occasionally plays an A and hammers on a B note,
you can hear it in the song).

The intro riff is:

E -----------|------------------||
B -----------|---------------7--||
G -9--8h9p8--|-----9--8---------||
D -----------|-7----------9-----||
A -----------|------------------||
E -----------|------------------||


Please escuse the vulgar misinterpretations of the lyrics:


      F#5
Yeah, I~ve been standing up
E5
I~ve been breaking free
  F#5                    E5           B5*
I don~t want fate handed down to me
      F#5
Yeah, I~ve been moving on
E5
Try another town
F#5
Times ain~t changin~ nothing
E5                   B5*
Take a look around

    D5        A5        G5
I~m lost in a one story town
      D5           A5           G5
Where everything~s close to the ground
      G5             A5
Yeah, same shit goes down
G5            A5
Nothing turns around
       G5  A5      B5*
It~s a one story town


She was over seventeen when I held her to her word
Had to push her luck
Thought she couldn~t breathe
No it didn~t hurt me when she had to leave
She had a far away feeling
Wasn~t part of me

I~m lost in a one story town
Where everything~s close to the ground
Yeah, same shit goes down
Nothing turns around
It~s a one story town

Instrumental:  A5, A5, A5....B5

Yeah, I~m lost in a one story town
Where everything~s close to the ground
Yeah, same shit goes down
Nothing turns around
It~s a one story town

Ending:  B5*


Those high guitar parts for the chorus are:

   X                    Y

E -----17--14---------|-5h7p5----------8h10p8-|
B -15----------15-----|-----------------------|
G -----------------16-|-----------------------|
D --------------------|-----------------------|
A --------------------|-----------------------|
E --------------------|-----------------------|


-X- is played sometimes during the first half of the chorus and -Y- is played
after that part where Petty sings -same shit goes down-.

I hope this has been help towards you.


Oh yeah!  For the instrumental Mike's guitar just plays:

A -10--12--|
E ---------|

And that's about it.
