Makin' Some Noise - Tom Petty

When I was a young boy
I was workin for the state
I wasnt makin much money
I was stayin out late
Go down at nighttime and
Play music in the bars
Take my breaks out underneath the stars

I was makin some noise
I was a workin boy up at the top of my voice
Sayin look at me mama Im makin some noise

I had to rock the boat, I had to shake the tree
To see whatd fall down on me
I thought maybe I can make it if I never give in
I been down before, I aint goin down again

Im makin some noise
I been a worried boy up at the top of my voice
Sayin look at me mama Im makin some noise

From across the canyon a guitar plays
Through an amplifier on a long delay
It was an ol d melody I recognized the song
I had an amplifier too, so I played along

Im makin some noise, Im still a working boy
Up at the top of my voice
Sayin look at me mama Im makin some noise

Im makin some noise, I been a long gone boy
