Uno de los mitos urbanos relacionados con el rock que más tiempo dieron vueltas en Estados Unidos. Según su interpretación, es la historia de una mujer que se suicidó tirándose de un balcón en el edificio en el que vivía Petty. Según su propio autor, es simplemente una composición inspirada en las primeras impresiones de su llegada a California después de mudarse desde Florida.

Tom Petty

American Girl

Well she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinkin' that there
Was a little more to life
Somewhere else
After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
Yeah, an d if she had to die
Tryin' she had one little promise
She was gonna keep
Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl
It was kind of cold that night
She stood alone on her balcony
She could the cars roll by
Out on 441
Like waves crashin' in the beach
And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it's so painful
Something that's so close
And still so far out of reach
Oh yeah, all right
Take it easy baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl
