By Tom Petty

If he don't wanna talk
Leave him alone
If he don't wanna talk
Leave him alone
He's a self-made man, he did it on his own

Now some folks say there's a dangerous side
Some folks says he's got dangerous side
He's a self-made man, he knows about pride

Chorus
So help me baby, look what love can do
It scares me baby, does it scare you too?

Some folks say it was a woman he knew
Some folks say it was a woman he knew
He's a self-made man, he knows how to lose
