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.

Keith Garrett
