          of my favorite Petty tunes with you. It is very easy, but fun
          to play! hope you like it as much as I do!   Best...Mark...

                           Runnin' Down A Dream
                           ---------------------

          Signature Riff: use throughout the entire song.
          I do it like this: on the top (low E string)
                                     (play power E chord)
          E 0--7--0--6--0--5--0--3--0---------------

          Verse1:
                 E
                 It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
                             D                 E
                 I had the radio on, I was drivin'

                 The trees went back, me and Del were singin'
                           D                  E
                 Little Runaway, I was so blind

          Chorus:        D       G       E
                 Yeah, Runnin' down a dream
                  E           G       A
                 Never would come to me
                 D          G       E
                 Workin' on a mystery
                 E          G         A
                 Goin' wherever it leads
                 D          G       E
                 Runnin' down a dream

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tom_petty/running_down_a_dream_crd.html ]
          Verse2:
                  E
                  I felt so good, like anything was possible
                         D                        E
                  Hit cruise control, and rub my eyes

                  Last three days, the rain was unstoppable
                          D                       E
                  (It) was always cold, no sunshine

          Repeat Chorus
          Break: It is just C (riff) D (riff) E (riff)  Play 2X

          Verse3:
                 E
                 I rolled on, the sky grew dark
                             D                        E
                 I put the pedal down, to make some time

                 There's something good, waiting down this road
                           D                 E
                 I'm pickin' up, whatever is mine

          Repeat chorus 2X, then Break part, and add SOLO!

                                      Enjoy! Mark....

        RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM - Petty
        ============================


         E                 
It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down
          D                   E
I had the radio on. I was drivin'
                                             D             
Trees flew by, me and Del was singin' little runaway 
      E
I was flyin'


CHORUS
         A       G      E
Yeah I'm runnin' down a dream
     E           G       A
That never would come to me
A            G    E   E          G      A 
Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
A       G      E
Runnin' down a dream


I felt so good like anything was possible
I hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes
The last tree days the rain was un-stoppable 
It was always cold, no sunshine


CHORUS


I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine


CHORUS
