Mary Jane's Last Dance - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Lyrics

She grew up in an Indiana town,
Had a good-lookin' mama who never was around.
But she grew up tall and she grew up right
With them Indiana boys on them Indiana nights.

Well, she moved down here at the age of eighteen.
She blew the boys away, was more than they'd seen.
I was introduced and we both started groovin'.
I said, "I dig you baby, but I got to keep movin' on.
Keep movin' on."

Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain.
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again.

Well, I don't know, but I've been told,
You never slow down, you never grow old.
I'm tired of screwin' up, tired of going down,
Tired of myself, tired of this town.

Oh, my, my. Oh, hell, yes.
Honey, put on that party dress.
Buy me a drink, sing me a song.
Take me as I come 'cause I can't stay long.

Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain.
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again.

There's pigeons down on Market Square.
She's standin' in her underwear,
Lookin' down from a hotel room.
Nightfall will be comin' soon.

Oh, my, my. Oh, hell, yes.
You got to put on that party dress.
It was too cold to cry when I woke up alone.
I hit my last number and walked to the road.

Last dance with Mary Jane, one more time to kill the pain.
I feel summer creepin' in and I'm tired of this town again.

    I have been a tom petty fan ever since 1978. I believe I might be able to clear up some questions about the video. At the time the video was made and the song was written, Tom Petty was trying to quit drugs For those of you who may not know "Mary Jane" is a slang term foe Marijuna. Since was going to quit using it he was representing the last time he used before he quit. It also states that "the life I had with drugs is dead" The girl has nothing to do with necrophilia, the girl represents the drugs he is giving up. As for when he puts her body in the sea and walks away is telling of his walking away from the drug life, the opening of her eyes and floating to the surface of the water is representative of the the false good times he had with drugs and the ever present temptation to be lured back with false pretenses. In my opinion, this is one of the most creative and reveling of the conflicts we all suffer inside ourselves. Could you be that open and honest? i dont think I could in public. Rest In Peace Tom Petty we all miss you very much thank god for the music that is left behind.

    Now that Tom Petty is dead, I truly hope every person that loves him remembers his music. Tom coined many great lyrics and many classic notes but Indiana Girl is by far is best. May Petty live long in Infamy and may he rest in peace.

    I heard this song after many years of not hearing it, and the first thing I thought of was "The Video", featuring Kim Basinger. Ooooh baby, creepy and cool. Only T.P.H.B. could pull it off. Madd Dogg ;<)

    This is a great vid. Somebody said "scary good". I'd add "weird good" to the mix. Kim once said that this was one of her harder roles because she had to be completely limp. This is along the same style as Arrowsmith's "Janey Got a Gun" in it's interpretation of his own song. I think this means this was his vision when he wrote it.

    I really like this song/video and it is a bit creepy/scary but that's what makes this video rememberable! Lol it's an older video but I remember it. :)

    Petty is a master of music videos, and this is his Citizen Kane. This video will haunt you.

    Love the video even more than the song. Petty took a risk with this because cookie cutter people like cookie cutter videos. This and don't come around here are two videos that should come with your iPhone. I am reminded of alice coopers cold ethyl every time I see this video.
