Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around

Baby, you’ll come knocking on my front door
Same old line you used to use before
I said, yeah, well, what am I supposed to do
I didn’t know what I was getting into

So you’ve had a little trouble in town
Now you’re keeping some demons down

Stop draggin’ my
Stop draggin’ my
Stop draggin’ my heart around

It’s hard to think about what you’ve wanted
It’s hard to think about what you’ve lost
This doesn’t have to be the big get even
This doesn’t have to be anything at all

I know you really want to tell me good-bye
I know you really want to be your own girl

Baby, you could never look me in the eye
Yeah, you buckle with the weight of the words

There’s people running ’round loose in the world
Ain’t got nothing better to do
Than make a meal of some bright eyed kid
You need someone looking after you

I know you really want to tell me goodbye
I know you really want to be your own girl

Baby, you could never look me in the eye
Yeah, you buckle with the weight of the words

Stop draggin’ my heart around
Stop draggin’ my heart around
Stop draggin’ my heart around

About the Song

Stevie had provided harmony vocals on “Insider,” a track from Tom Petty’s 1981 album Hard Promises, which was produced by him and Jimmy Iovine. Jimmy, who’d also been working on Stevie’s debut Bella Donna around the same time, suggested that she record Tom’s “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” to improve the album’s chances of being successful. Jimmy felt the album didn’t have a strong single to help market it. Jimmy’s theory turned out to be true, as “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” raced to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, boosting Bella Donna to No. 1 on the album chart. The song remains Stevie’s highest charting solo single to date.
