Tom Petty - Swingin 歌詞含意

Tom Petty - Swingin 歌詞含意

Well, she was standing by the highway

In her boots and silver spurs

Gonna hitchhike to the yellow moon

When a Cadillac stopped for her

And she said, "Hey, nice to meet you, are you goin' my way?"

Yeah, that's when it happened

The world caught fire that day

And she went down swingin'

Yeah, she went down swingin'

Well, she was over twenty-one

In trouble with the law

And it didn't faze her none

She called her mother-in-law

And said I need a little money

I knew I could count on you

After that night in Vegas

And the hell that we went through

We went down swingin'

Like Benny Goodman

Yeah, we went down swingin'

Moonlight on the interstate

She was 'cross the Georgia line

Looked out the window feeling great

Yeah, it had to come in time

And she said I'm never goin' back

She said at last I'm free

I wish ma could see me now, she'd be so proud of me

She went down swingin'

Like Glenn Miller

Yeah, she went down swingin'

Like Tommy Dorsey

Yeah, she went down swingin'

Like Sammy Davis

She went down swingin'

Like Sonny Liston

    感謝版主帶領看了一下這個MV

    拍的好友意境

    還是大明星耶

    歌詞中所提到的都是搖擺樂的大師

    像是Benny Goodman

    所以朝這方向想就沒錯了

    意境有點像Hotel California
