That deep voiced, blonde headed young man, guitar In hand,
From way back when I was young, listening to a magnificent band.
Tom Petty and his heart breakers toured many a land, microphone In hand,
For forty years music and songs have been written for the world to hear,
Grammy awards well deserved, listen for a moment as the sound from him lives on.
Tom has left and gone away, on his way to a beautiful place, rockin’ all the way,
A sad occasion, a tragedy for the music world, a brother of musical poetry says goodbye.
Here’s to you Mr. Petty, a prayer for a peaceful journey to wherever heaven may be,
A guitar and mike In hand, sing loud those tunes of life, smile that music man’s smile always.
