Burnt Out Town (Tom Petty)

Yeah, uh-huh I was walking down the street the other day A woman stopped me She said, "Why is it you look so down in the mouth?" And I told her This is a burnt out town It's full of dirty looks There's ashes on main street And the mayor is cooking the books Why, even my best friends Are turning into crooks Yeah this is a burnt out town New Emperor, same clothes They're dancing on the glass ceilings While the filthy money flows Yes, and here I am stealing gas With a garden hose Aw, look out now... This is a burnt out town The city fathers have come to blows It's out of their realm of reality The truth's indecent when exposed Yeah, it's a burnt out town It's going down but no one knows Yeah, it's a burnt out town Ain't dead but getting close
