"Lost Children" as written by and Tom Petty....
Lord, please watch over
All these lost children
Born to chase the hurricane.
Please shine some light down
On those who wander
Filled with hunger and pain.

Please raise the wind for
All those out sailing
On an ocean alone
Lord, shine a light on
All these lost children
Far away from their home.

Lord, keep an eye on
All these lost children
Swept away in the wind.
Please shine some light down
On all those travelling,
Lead them on home again.

    General CommentHas anyone ever heard Pink Floyd's "When You're In" (from Obscured By Clouds)? The riffs in these two songs are close enough to involve a lawsuit, if you ask me.

    General CommentWell, what about The Who's "Captain Walker" segment from the Overture on Tommy? Plenty of blues-oriented songs have riffs like that.

    Now, RHCP's "Dani California" is a complete rip of Petty's "Mary Jane's Lasty Dance," because it's almost exactly the same gutiar-wise and lyrically.
