Here Comes My Girl Lyrics

You know sometimes, I don't know why,
But this old town seems so hopeless.
Yeah, I ain't really sure, but it seems I remember the good times
Were just a little bit more in focus.

But when she puts her arms around me
I can somehow rise above it.
Yeah, man when I got that little girl standin' right by my side,
You know, I can tell the whole wide world to shove it, hey!

Here comes my girl. Here comes my girl.
Yeah, and she looks so right, she is all I need tonight.

Every now and then I down to the end of the day
And I have to stop and ask myself why I've done it.
It just seems so useless to have to work so hard
And nothin' ever really seems to come from it.

But then she looks me in the eye and says,
"We're gonna last forever."
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it.
No, 'cause it just feels so good and so free and so right.
I know we ain't never goin' to change our minds about it - hey!

Here comes my girl. Here comes my girl.
Yeah, and she looks so right, she is all I need tonight. (Watch her walk.)

Every time it seems like there ain't nothin' left no more,
I find myself having to reach out and grab hold of something.
Yeah, I just catch myself waiting, wondering, worrying
About some silly little things that don't add up to nothin'.

But then she looks me in the eye and says,
"We're gonna last forever."
And man, you know I can't begin to doubt it.
No, 'cause it just feels so good and so free and so right.
I know we ain't never gonna' to change our minds about it - hey!

Here comes my girl. Here comes my girl.
Yeah, and she looks so right, she is all I need tonight.

Probably my favorite song of all time. A really underrated IMO song from Tom. The sound is kind of bluesy but still rock. The meaning is pretty clear. It's facing the hardships of the world and then coming home to the one you love and realizing that none of it matters and being with this person makes it all worth it.

This song always makes me smile and think of my daughter! :)

Does it seem to anyone else that a lot of Petty's music from the 70s/80s is about his wife. Especially this song. It's sad because it seems like he really loved her. Now he has to sing all these songs that seem to be about her all the time.

So true. So true. Petty a great American poet.

Moehead, that is a GREAT way to look at it. I'm not a parent so I've never actually thought of that aspect of the song but it's very sweet to think of it that way.

This is one of my favorite Petty songs. I love it so much. It has a great meaning, anyway you look at it.

One of his greatest songs. Sometimes all you need is your girl, and fuck everyone else because you know she's there for you. I dig how he says watch her walk during the solo. I can almost envision her walking! lol
