Tom Petty's, "Ankle Deep"
The Lyrics:
The field hand hit the switch and stumbled
Outside the big engine roared and rumbled
The stolen horse spooked and tumbled
She didn't speak for a week, just kind of mumbled
The engine roared and rumbled
She just mumbled

She like to call me king bee
She like to buzz 'round my tree
I call her honey bee
She is buzzing around his tree

The Lyrics:
High tide rumbles PCH
My tires losing tread
Helicopter circling
White beam overhead
High tide is rumbling
