Words And Music By Tom Petty

I'm goin' down to the house in the woods
See my little darlin'
I'm goin' down, out in the fields
With summertime comin'

Oh my love, what can I do
What can I do but love you?
For the rest of my days, the rest of my nights
What can I do but love you?

Summertime falls on the house in the woods
Back by the power lines
I ain't got a neighbor for nine or ten miles
Back in the tall pines

And hey, now baby, what can I do?
What am I goin' to do but trust you?
The rest of my nights, the rest of my days
What can I do but love you?

Hey now baby, what can I do?
What am I goin' to do but love you
For the rest of my days, the rest of my nights

    Obviously he was in a very dark place when he wrote not just this song, but this entire album. I think he's just saying he wants to get away from everything and everybody and frankly i don't blame him.
