One, two, three, four

We all got troubles, we all got pain
Yeah everybody’s got their own versions of cocaine
Nobody’s perfect like a thorn on a rose
I’ve got a closet full of skeletons underneath my clothes
Long overdue for confessing my confessions
I’m the hypocrite poster boy perfecting imperfection

Take your heart out on the highway
When you hit the road again
You’re always treating every stranger
That you meet like an old friend

Your life doesn’t have a rewind
So don’t live it with regret
And you better watch out
Where you flick your cigarette
So, don’t be starting fires
Unless you’re getting cold
Mix it up with wine and music
And a loved one to hold
I don’t throw stones
Don’t want no one throwing ’em back
So save yourself the trouble
And go cut the world some slack

You take your heart out on the highway
When you hit the road again
You’re always treating every stranger
That you meet like an old friend
Just like an old friend

We all got troubles, we all got pain
Yeah everybody’s got their own versions of cocaine
Left wing or right wing it takes both wings for flight
Can’t you hear the children singing red and yellow, black and white
So, stop your fighting, start uniting, sing along
I think we all agree we love a Tom Petty Song

You take your heart out on the highway
When you hit the road again
You’re always treating every stranger
That you meet like an old friend
You take your heart out on the highway
When you hit the road again
You’re always treating every stranger
That you meet like an old friend
Just like an old friend (heart out on the highway)
Just like an old friend (heart out on the highway)
Treating every stranger (heart out on the highway)
Just like an old friend
