By Tom Petty

Two gunslingers walked out in the street and one said
"I don't wanna fight no more"
And the other gunslinger thought about it and said
"Yeah, what are we fighting for?

I'm takin' control of my life, I'm takin' control of my life,
I'm takin' control of my life now, right now oh yeah"

Well the crowd that assembled for the gunfight
Were let down, everyone hissed and booed
And a stranger told his Mrs. "That's the last one of these gunfights
You're ever gonna drag me to.

I'm takin' control of my life, I'm takin' control of my life,
I'm takin' control of my life now, right now oh yeah"

Well the two gunslingers went ridin' out of town and
Were never heard from no more
And there ain't been a gunfight for a long time,
Maybe never, but nobody knows for sure

I'm takin' control of my life, I'm takin' control of my life,
