Episode 21 Preview - Free Fallin'

Time for some Americana classics with Tom Petty's "Free Fallin" (sorry, no Heartbreakers).  On the drive to Thanksgiving, as I subjected my family to hours of podcasts, we discovered that there was a new biography about Tom Petty.  "Why haven't we done a Tom Petty song?" I said to no one in particular.  After repeating myself multiple times, my wife chose "Free Fallin" to shut me up.  And here we are with the magic happening!

Please listen to the song by picking it up on iTunes, Amazon Music (free with Prime), or Google Play.  Or just buy the whole greatest hits album, which is what I did.  I was told we actually owned a real copy somewhere in our CD box in the garage.  But it was worth the 10 bucks to avoid digging through that morass.

Below are the lyrics to the song and the music video.

"Free Fallin'"

She's a good girl, loves her mama
Loves Jesus and America too
She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis
Loves horses and her boyfriend too

It's a long day livin' in Reseda
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard
And I'm a bad boy, 'cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

And I'm free, I'm free fallin'

All the vampires walkin' through the valley
Move west down Ventura Blvd.
And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows
All the good girls are home with broken hearts


I wanna glide down over Mulholland
I wanna write her name in the sky
I wanna free fall out into nothin'
Gonna leave this world for awhile


So listen, watch, and read and come back to join us on Wednesday for the full episode.
