  1. Thomas Dowdall

    My favourite song from an amazingly good album.

  2. Dave Ingenbohs

    I love this man and this song so much. Tom reminds me so much of my dad. I would give anything to see either of them again. 😭 "The world caught fire that day."

    I love tom petty

  14. TheJukeboxhero15

    Moonlight on the interstate
    She was across the Georgia line

    Looked out the window feeling great

    Yeah, it had to come in time

    And she said I'm never going back

    She said at last I'm free

    I wish ma could see me now, she'd be so proud of me
    She went down swingin'

    Like Glenn Miller

    Yeah, she went down swingin'

    Like Tommy Dorsey

    Yeah, she went down swingin'

    Like Sammy Davis

    She went down swingin'

    Like Sonny Liston

  15. TheJukeboxhero15

    Well, she was over twenty-one
    In trouble with the law

    And it didn't faze her none

    She called her mother-in-law

    And said I need a little money

    I knew I could count on you

    After that night in Vegas

    And the hell that we went through



    We went down swingin'

    Like Benny Goodman

    Yeah, we went down swingin'

  16. TheJukeboxhero15

    Well, she was standing by the highway
    In her boots and silver spurs

    Going to hitchhike to the yellow moon

    When a Cadillac stopped for her

    And she said, "Hey, nice to meet you, are you goin' my way?"

    Yeah, that's when it happened

    The world caught fire that day



    And she went down swingin'

    Yeah, she went down swingin'

  17. TheJukeboxhero15

    DRUGS KILLED PETTY, SWINGIN

  18. Roxanne Wood Donahoo

    About this video ; their music was so down to earth, and the ghosts were perfect! The lead actress looked much like Petty's Mom.

  19. Mr.SmithGNR Smith

    One of their very best...perfection

  20. sonic jet

    TOM PETTY WENT DOWN SWINGING, GOD BLESS HIS ROCK N ROLL BLUES SOUL

  21. Jackson Everage

    I can't go a day without my Tom Petty fix.
    When shit isn't right I turn to this song. Echo is a great record and something in this song gets right to my soul and the healing begins.
    Then sadness sets in because Tom is no longer with us and that hurts a lot. He/ They left us with so much great music that we know it was real and honest. There's a comfort in that and there will never be another Tom Petty in my life time. I'm just glad I got to know his music and story.
    The word ICON is used way to much these days for undeserving people but Tom was a true ICON.
    RIP TOM... TIL WE CROSS PATHS ON THE OTHER SIDE, I'LL KEEP SWINGIN'

  22. Chris William

    There's one thing about swinging and then there's another thing about bold-faced line to motherfukers face and taking his child daddy raised from day one and don't say I didn't f****** raise why you out playing Tradewind all night every night

  23. Greg Oltmanns

    Sure do miss the guy !

  24. JOE ANDRES

    HE WAS MY FAVORITE SINGER!!!

  25. TheJukeboxhero15

    WTF, I THINK THE GIRL IS A WHORE IN THIS, RIGHT?

  26. H Warner

    One of the greatest musicians of all time. Tom is sorely missed but his music will live forever.

  27. TheJukeboxhero15

    TOM SHOULD HAVE FALLEN FROM BUIDING, NO FU STUNT PEOPLE

  28. TheJukeboxhero15

    IS THIS WHEN SHOT UP

  29. TheJukeboxhero15

    TOM OVERDOSED., GOOD BYE. WE PAT TAXES FOR YOU, LOSER

  30. Sue Maher

    Love this. Tom looks absolutely georgous. He was and always be a legend. God we miss him. He left us all a catalogue of work that doesn't date and since his passing we listen that bit more deeply. He wrote from the heart. Saw him many times in England . Tom and Heartbreakers the greatest live band I ever saw. Such beautiful memories. We loved them in England

  31. Stefan Johansson

    So many things with Petty we never got to know. He must've been a very enjoyable person to hang with. Funny, smart, and always authentic.

  32. Suzanne Reilman

    ...Sayin’ dis in the most respectful way possible, but dis MF-er was rawwwww....;)!

  33. jay thacker

    The "King" R.I.P. thanks for the music.

  34. Sheila IrishBrooklynGirl

    My Song Forever

  35. Kevin Howes

    Hey, why does the new guy have to stand outside in the rain?

  36. steelyman08

    It's on the darker side, but it's a classic. Tom knew about both the dark and the light. Can't have one without the other.

  37. brett allan

    Top 3 petty song’s

  38. Janice Hensley

    Happy birthday Tom. It’s too soon and raw. So sad and missing u😭❤️🎩💔🎸

  39. Patrick Fringer

    this video gave me goose pimples

  40. antlers163

    Good music...!

  41. Martin Dueñas

    Estoy escuchando la música de mi vida......puro placer!!!!!

  42. Gianni Bombolee

    miss you

  43. Nobody Better

    Perhaps the best album they ever put out. We lost him two years ago today. It still stings. Saw him twice. Late 70s and in 99. Always humble and thankful to the fans.

  44. Desert Sky

    2:05 - October 1, 2017, was the Vegas Massacre, then we lost Tom on October 2. Today is October 1, 2019. 2yrs. Still hurts.
    "After that night in Vegas, and the hell that we went through ♪♫♪♪♫ We went down.....Swingin'...."

  45. The Gatsbys

    one of the most moving videos I ever saw - thanks Tom !!!

  46. Evan Gray

    luke wilson falling from a window and pert boobies? yes please.

  47. Eric Gilbert

    Why do cars that are rolling over hardly ever have engines, transmissions and exhaust systems in videos and movies? So disappointing to people that pay attention to details. How long would it take to shop that shit in?

  48. Darrell Hopkins

    The man, his band, their music... gone but never forgotten...

  49. IlliniJake

    Too many people do not know this song.

  50. egads2

    Miss 'em no matter how he "left the 'Scene.'"

  51. TOM COOK

    Looks like Tunney from the craft, awesome video..

  52. Amber Fillmore

    Oh God. That moment at 1:33 when she looks over her shoulder and the meet eyes for just a second, but he looks away.
    She needs solace from someone, just a second of understanding from a sympathetic face and he won't give it.
    Makes me cry almost every time. Miss you Mr. Petty

    Edward Patrick Molina

    Made me cry too, Amber.

    Amber Fillmore

    @Edward Patrick Molina Thank you Edward. It's nice to know I'm not the only one

  53. Edward Patrick Molina

    If you gotta go down, always... always...always, go down swingin'---like Tom Petty. RIP Tom. Gawd, we could sure use you now, more than ever.


    THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC!!!

  54. TheJukeboxhero15

    Hi all, the lyrics. it's difficult to hear the words


    Well, she was standing by the highway
    In her boots and silver spurs

    Gonna hitchhike to the yellow moon
    When a Cadillac stopped for her

    And she said, "Hey, nice to meet you, are you goin' my way?"
    Yeah, that's when it happened
    The world caught fire that day



    And she went down swingin'

    Yeah, she went down swingin'



    Well, she was over twenty-one
    In trouble with the law
    And it didn't faze her none

    She called her mother-in-law
    And said I need a little money

    I knew I could count on you
    After that night in Vegas

    And the hell that we went through



    We went down swingin'

    Like Benny Goodman

    Yeah, we went down swingin'



    Moonlight on the interstate
    She was 'cross the Georgia line

    Looked out the window feeling great
    Yeah, it had to come in time

    And she said I'm never goin' back
    She said at last I'm free

    I wish ma could see me now, she'd be so proud of me



    She went down swingin'

    Like Glenn Miller

    Yeah, she went down swingin'

    Like Tommy Dorsey

    Yeah, she went down swingin'

    Like Sammy Davis

    She went down swingin'

  58. Richard James

  59. Dharma Beach Bum

    The image of Tom just leanin' back, boots on the table, playin' the harp is so cool. And Swingin' s among my favorite songs of his.

    Tom Petty was like John Fogerty. He wrote a song for everyone. His songs span the range of human emotions. I never felt the loss of a musician the way I did when he died.

    Tom Petty came to LA from gatorville Florida and laid it on the line just like this.
    Went down in Malibu without a fight after the last show in Hollywood which I was at.
    Sure I'm from around here and this is how we go down, swingin'.

  96. Shane wilhelmi

    It's too bad they wrecked a 1976 Pontiac Grand Prix at 5:28 ... I had a gold 76 Grand Prix , I loved that car

  97. Chris Lehmann

    Was in the pool hall today when this song came on. Had forgotten all about it and it brought me back to 1999 when my future wife and I were just kids and didn’t know Shit. This song was everywhere on the radio but I had forgotten all about till today. RIP Tom Petty and thanks for bringing back some good memories.
