"All Or Nothin" as written by Tom Petty, Michael W. Campbell and Jeff Lynne....
Your daddy was a Sgt. Major
You didn't wanna but he made you
Wipe his brass from time to time
It left a picture in your mind. You know? You know?

You want it all, you want it all
All or nothin'

Here am I a fallen arrow
My load is wide, my street is narrow
My skin is thicker, my heart is tougher
I don't mind workin', but I'm scared to suffer
You know? You know?

You want it all, you want it all
All or nothin'

Sweet chariots of L.A. swing low
At twilight time the smog makes a rainbow
So keep one eye on the weather

You had it good, you wanted better
You know? You know?

You want it all, you want it all
All or nothin'

    General Commentwooo! Gotta be one of the most awesomeist songs ever played!!! Wow, what a great song, and an awesome verse when it talks about the weather. And the guitar is soooooo sweet! Can't argue with this, this is pure amazing rock.

    When i was 3 i used to play this song over and over on the stereo system in my bedroom and my 1 year old brother and i would jump around on the bed singing this song. Man when you connect to a song as a kid it never leaves you.
