First Drafts of Rock take a look at the original version of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" - entitled "Free Horses." Lyrics below:

She’s a good girl, loves her mama
Loves horses, and America too
She’s a good girl, crazy ‘bout Elvis
Loves horses, and her boyfriend too.

She loves horses, and she also loves rainbows
She loves flowers, and horses too
She likes football, but she really loves horses
Yeah those horses, she really really loves.

But if there’s one thing, she loves most about horses
It’s that they’re horses, that’s the one thing
So just to be clear, she’s a fan of the horses,
She loves horses, la de da de da.

She digs horses, yeah she’s nuts about horses
She enjoys hor, ses yeah she does
She loves horse hair, horse teeth and horse noses
She loves horseshoes, and horses too.

She likes ponies, but not as much as horses
She likes horses, much much more
She likes unicorns, but she calls ‘em “horny horses”
She loves horses, yeah that’s what she loves.

She doesn’t like goats, and she don’t like llamas,
She don’t care for, them crazy kangaroos,
And I’m a bad boy, cuz I don’t like horses
She loves horses, Ventura Boulevard.

Now I’m free! Free horses!
Now I’m free! Free horses!
