Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers have a third single out today from Hypnotic Eye, their upcoming album due out July 29. This one's called "Red River," and it follows on the heels of "U Get Me High" and "American Dream Plan B."

"Red River" is classic Petty but also scintillatingly original. Check out the exotic lyrics, which contain images like a rabbit's foot and a tiger's tooth. Also, listen for the interesting two-part guitar break -- first dreamy and acoustic, then aggressive and electric.

Tom Petty is giving away copies of Hypnotic Eye with every ticket for his upcoming 2014 tour. That includes advance downloads of five tracks, including "Red River," "U Get Me High," and "American Dream Plan B." The downloads are also available if you pre-order the album on either iTunes or Petty's site. You can also get them if you are a member of the group's Highway Companions Club.

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers "Red River" Lyrics:

She's got a 3-D Jesus in a picture frame
Got a child that she never named

She shakes a snake above her hair
Talks in tongues when there's no one there

So meet me tonight at the Red River
Where the water is clear and cold
Meet me tonight at the Red River
And look down into your soul
Look down into your soul

She's got a rosary and a rabbit's foot
A black cat bone that treats her good

A tiger tooth and a gris-gris stick
Still it don't do the trick

So meet me tonight at the Red River
Where the water is clear and cold
Meet me tonight at the Red River
And look down into your soul
Look down into your soul

Guitar Break

I'm gonna walk her down to gypsy town
Find the spirit queen I've seen around
Paint her body up in mud and clay
Let the river wash it all away

So meet me tonight at the Red River
Where the water is clear and cold
Meet me tonight at the Red River
And look down into your soul
Look down into your soul
Look down into your soul
