Tom Petty – Leave Virginia Alone Lyrics

Leave Virginia Alone Lyrics By Tom Petty

Well they chased her down the alley
And over the hill to steal her will
She was hot as Georgia asphalt
When the “A” crowd came to adore her brain

So leave Virginia alone
Leave Virginia alone
She’s not like you and me
She’s not like you and me

You should’ve seen her back in the city
Poetry and jewels, broke all the rules
She was as high as a Georgia pine tree
Makeup and pills, overdue bills

So leave Virginia alone
Leave Virginia alone
She’s not like you and me
She’s not like you and me

Some sunny day when the hands of time
Have had their way
You’ll understand why it was so hard to run away

She’s a loser, she’s a forgiver
And she still finds good where no one could
You ought to want her more than money
Cadillacs and rust, diamonds and dust

So leave Virginia alone
Leave Virginia alone
She’s not like you and me
She’s not like you and me
Yeah, leave Virginia alone
Leave Virginia alone
She’s not like you and me
She’s not like you and me
