Walkin' from the Fire

This song is by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and appears on the compilation album An American Treasure (2018).

They come out here with the dog on a chain
And they took my little brother away
Tell my mama he was selling cocaine
They took my brother to the juvenile house
Where they held for a quarter of an ounce
My mama told me not to hang around the house

I'm walkin' from the fire
Don't put me in a corner
Yeah, I'm trying to walk away
Let this one blow over
But I'm fightin' like a tiger
Don't put me in the corner

Last time I seen her was a discotheque
Countin' buttons on a lawyer's vest
She walked out but it ain't over yet

I'm walkin' from the fire
Don't put me in a corner
Just try to walk away
Let this one blow over
But I'm fightin' like a tiger
Don't put me in the corner

I'm walkin' from the fire
Don't put me in a corner
I'm walkin' from the fire
Don't put me in a corner

Mama used to rock back in 1953
Buys him all the records that they sell on TV
I know Chuck Berry wasn't saying that for me

I'm walkin' from the fire
Don't put me in a corner
Yes, I'm turning that cheek
'Til this is all over
But I'm fightin' like a tiger
Don't put me in the corner

I'm walkin' from the fire
I'm walkin' from the fire
