The Same Old You by Tom Petty

By Tom Petty and Mike Campbell


Hey I remember you back in '72

With your David Bowie hair and your platform shoes

You had a part-time job selling fast food

But out on the street you was nobody's fool



Baby way down deep it's the same old you

Way down deep you ain't hiding the truth

Just for a minute you had me confused

But baby way down deep it's the same old you

Lyrics provided by

Well you can walk through the city on fire

You can try and turn away from the truth

Living life like a young politician

Sure of yourself and bullet-proof

But baby


(Repeat Chorus)


We could buy a '62 Cadillac

Put a Fender amplifier in the back

Drive straight to the heart of America

Turn up to ten let that sucker blast
