​Mary Janes Last Dance Alternate Chorus Lyric?

Just listening to Tom Petty's Greatest Hits on vinyl.

Got to Mary Janes Last Dance and the first chorus says;

"Last Dance with Mary Jane

Round the room and on my way."

I've NEVER heard this version before. I've always heard "One more time to kill the pain", which is

what he sings for the remaining chorus' after.

Anyone have any information on this version? I don't recall the original CD having this lyric.

Damn, you're right!

I picked up the vinyl the other day, but hadn't listened to it yet. After reading your post, I played it and, sure enough, the first chorus lyric is different! I compared it to all other appearances of the song in my collection, and I don't think this particular version has ever been released before. Looks like a screw-up to me!

I bet this version -- with the wrong chorus lyric -- was the way the song originally was finished. Then, afterward, Petty went back and replaced that first chorus with a copy of one of the later choruses (which all feature the "one more time to kill the pain" lyric) before releasing it.

Good catch!
