Written by John Sebastian. I only know the cover of Tom Petty and I love the relaxed and laid back way they play and sing this. This guy is so cool !!
D (Tom Petty)
gCEA or LowG
This is indeed a simple song, with the melody notes picked over the strum pattern (as indicated in the two intro bars). I only wrote down the melody, which can be played mainly from the first position chords. In the beginning of the verse, you will need your pinky for the high d. And, in the full verse, there is one brief slide up to the seventh fret. You will notice that in bar 11 of the chorus I switched to the higher octave. The song starts with a „half verse“ [ A ], then chorus [ B ], and then the full verse [ C ]. After that, repeat [ B ] [ C ] [ B ].
