Written by: Tom Petty

She graduated high school I bought her a trailer
In a little park by the side of the road
I could've had the Army
I could've had the Navy
But no I had to go for a mobile home

Yeah I guess I gave it all for you babe
There wasn't room in that trailer for two babe

I kept up with my interest
I kept up with my payments
She never said goodbye
I never asked why
Man we used to dance to Lynyrd Skynyrd
Boy she used to look so good at times

But I guess I gave it all to you babe
There's not room in no trailer for two babe

Well I guess I gave it all for you babe
