“…Drinkin’ From a Dixie…” Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Runnin’ Down A Dream

Image result for tom petty

A-HOWDY FINE MORNIN’ TO Y’ALL!

THE FIRST SIP…

“To DREAM is the only thing that is FREE in THIS WORLD.”

They say, “To DREAM is the only thing that is FREE in THIS WORLD.”

Yep, only them Dreams are free and them Dreams could SET US FREE…

Dreaming, after all, them years simply shows that we are alive an’ (still) kickin’—even after the Rough an’ Tuff.

Once we stop, then it’s THE END for us all.

CHASING THE DREAM ain’t bad at all—even when things aren’t always going as well as we had planned and hoped for, just keep on goin’-an’-going-energizer-bunny-goin’!

Just like this great song by (another late but very great) Tom Petty, “Runnin’ Down A Dream.” It speaks of—not just goin’ after the dream but—actually runnin’ it down!

Speaking in a philosophical way, Tom tells us his story—which OUR STORY—of the good, not-so-good to the harsh. AS IT IS. Quite appropo- is the rhythm and the dirt and the grit of the guitars on this beautiful cut from his 1989 album, Full Moon Fever. Just like goin’ full throttle on the highway getting’ ready to run somebody down.

“Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads…”

I rolled on as the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There’s something good waitin’ down this road
I’m pickin’ up whatever’s mine

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream…

 THE LAST DROP…

Yep, never ever get tired of chasing THAT DREAM no matter how tedious the Travel… No matter how arduous the Journey because as it says in Jeremiah 29: 11

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Here’s a Li’l Something for y’all…

You have just been “..Drinkin’ From A Dixie…”

May y’all be Safe and Well and…

“MAY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY BLESS US ALL AND SET US FREE!”
