This song is performed by Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers and appears on the compilation box set Playback (1995).
They came this mornin' with a dog on a chain
They came and took my little brother away
His generation never even got a name

My momma was a rocker way back in '53
Buys them old records that they sell on T.V.
I know Chuck Berry wasn't singin' that to me

(Chorus)
Mama,
That's all right, it's your world
Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My life / your world

I watch that fortune wheel
But never get to spin it
You made me promises, I don't think you meant it
If there's some sunshine baby
I'm gonna get out in it, oh yeah

(Chous)
Mama,
That's all right, it's your world
Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My life / your world

I tried to leave, but the traffic had been stopped
The beach was burnin', and someone was
Throwin' rocks
They said an airplane had
Fallen in my block

(Chorus)
Mama,
That's all right, it's your world
Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My life / your world
