Jack Lyrics

You say what you want to Jack
I'm gonna get my baby back
Trouble came ran away
Now you say she's gone to stay
Got fed up, hit the street
Left without a word to meOh you don't know
How the girl could touch my soulYou say what you want to Jack
I'm gonna get my baby backSuddenly you know my name
Say there's only me to blame
It's gonna rain, it's gonna shine
Gotta stay between the lines
Rolling down a lonely road
You say I should let it go
Wish you would come on down
If you need I'll come aroundYou say what you want to Jack
I'm gonna get my baby backUsed to have a son named Joe
Where he got to I don't know
Maybe down in Mexico
Livin' off her daddy's dough
If you give me half a chance
I will make her sing and dance
I'm gonna give her all my soul
I'm gonna play her rock and rollYou say what you want to Jack
I'm gonna get my baby back

Thomas Earl Petty (born 20 October 1950 in Gainesville, Florida) is an American musician, singer, composer and songwriter.
After working with his early bands The Sundowners, The Epics, and Mudcrutch (which also included future Heartbreakers members Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench) he began his recording career with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers when the band broke onto the national music scene with their 1976 self-titled debut album. Still, it took America a full year to catch up to the album. "Breakdown" was re-released to radio and became a Top 40 hit in 1977 after word filtered back the band was creating a firestorm in England.
He was also a member of The Traveling Wilburys, along with George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and Roy Orbison. Petty and the Heartbreakers also toured as a backing band for Bob Dylan.

Petty is a vocal critic of the modern recording industry, including the disintegration of independent radio stations.

Petty has been supported by his band, The Heartbreakers, for the majority of his career. He has occasionally released solo work, as is the case with his 2006 effort, Highway Companion, on which he performed most of the backing instrumentation himself. Examples of other solo albums include Full Moon Fever and Wildflowers

His latest release is a reunion of Mudcrutch. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
