WATCH: Jimmy Fallon, Kevin Bacon Horse Around With Tom Petty’s “Free Fallin’”

Jimmy Fallon is no stranger to impersonating iconic rockers, but on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, Kevin Bacon also got in on the act.

In a new installment of his “First Drafts of Rock” bit, Fallon plays slightly frustrated Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell to Bacon’s Tom Petty who shows the massive hit “Free Fallin’” supposedly had a lot more lyrics about horses in its first draft.

Frankly, we don’t think anyone could like horses that much!  Glad this "first draft" was amended!
