Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Runnin' Down A Dream (Amazing Guitar Solo)




"Runnin' Down a Dream" is a song co-written and recorded by Tom Petty. It was released in July 1989 as the second single from his first solo album Full Moon Fever. "Runnin' Down a Dream" achieved reasonable chart success, reaching number 23 both in Canada and on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the top of the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart. It has since garnered significant airplay on classic rock stations, and lent its name to the 2007 documentary on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.






Lyrics


It was a beautiful day, the sun beat down

I had the radio on, I was drivin'

Trees went by, me and Del were singin' little Runaway

I was flyin'


Yeah, runnin' down a dream that never would come to me

Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads

Runnin' down a dream


I felt so good, like anything was possible

Hit cruise control and rubbed my eyes

The last three days the rain was unstoppable

It was always cold, no sunshine


Yeah, runnin' down a dream that never would come to me

Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads

Runnin' down a dream


I rolled on, the sky grew dark

I put the pedal down to make some time

There's something good waitin' down this road

I'm pickin' up whatever's mine


I'm runnin' down a dream that never would've come to me

Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads

Runnin' down a dream

Yeah, I'm runnin' down a dream that never would've come to me

Workin' on a mystery, goin' wherever it leads

I'm runnin' down a dream


[Guitar Solo]
