Lyrics

I'm goin' down to the house in the woods
See my little darlin'
I'm goin' down, out in the fields
With summertime comin'

Oh my love, what can I do
What can I do but love you?
For the rest of my days, the rest of my nights
What can I do but love you?

Summertime falls on the house in the woods
Back by the power lines
I ain't got a neighbor for nine or ten miles
Back in the tall pines

And hey, now baby, what can I do?
What am I goin' to do but trust you?
The rest of my nights, the rest of my days
What can I do but love you?

Hey now baby, what can I do?
What am I goin' to do but love you
For the rest of my days, the rest of my nights
What could I do but love you?

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/petty_tom/house_in_the_woods_btab.html ]
Those are the single guitar and basslines for the verse.  The song begins 
with bassline number 1 and plays it two times.  Then when Petty starts 	
singing, bassline number 1 is played once then bassline number 2 is 	
played.  Then the chorus follows which is:


   C     G      C     G      C     G      Em    A      C     G

G ------------|------------|------------|------------|------------|
D ------------|------------|------------|------------|------------|
A -3---2-----2|-3---2-----2|-3---2------|-------0-2-4|-3---2-----2|
E -------3----|-------3----|-------3---2|-0-2-3------|-------3----|


   C     G      C     G      Em    A      D

G ------------|------------|------------|------------|
D ------------|------------|------------|-0----------|
A -3---2-----2|-3---2------|-------0-2-4|------------|
E ------3-----|-------3---2|-0-2-3------|------------|


After that part, the song goes back to another verse and another chorus.
After the second chorus, the guitar and bass plays the riff on the
A and D strings like (I will call this Riff X):


E ----------------------------|
B ----------------------------|
G ----------------------------| (As you may notice, I have no measure lines 
D -0------------------------2-|  so just play it like how you hear it)
A -----0-2-3---0-2-3--0-2-3---|   
E ----------------------------|


Play this part repeatedly (I think four times then the song goes into a 
slight verse instrumental and back to the chorus and then back into the 
verse.  These are basically the tabs for the song. 

(I think the song goes back to Riff X then continues on ad infinitum
into the ever famous verse chords)


The chords, if you are wondering, for this song are:
