Baby Girl

This song is by Sugarland and appears on the album Twice The Speed Of Life (2004) and on the compilation Clover Country (2008).

They say in this town
The stars stay up all night
Well I don't know, can't see em'
For the glow of the neon lights
And it's a long way from here
To the place where the home fires burn
Well it's two thousand miles and one left turn

Dear Mom and Dad please send money
I'm so broke that it ain't funny
Well I Don't need much just enough to get me through
Please don't worry 'cause I'm all right
See I'm playin' here at the bar tonight
Well this time I'm going make our dreams come true
Well I love you more than anything in the world
Love your baby girl

Blacktop, blue sky,
Big town full of little white lies
Everybody's your friend
You can never be sure
They promise fancy cars and diamond rings
All sorts of shiny things
Girl you'll remember what your knees are for

Dear Mom and Dad, please send money
I'm so broke that it ain't funny
Well I don't need much just enough to get me through
Please don't worry 'cause I'm all right
See I'm playin' here at the bar tonight
This time I'm gonna make our dreams come true
Well I love you more than anything in the world
Love your Baby Girl

I know that I'm on my way
Well I can tell every time I play
And I know it's worth all the dues I pay
When I can write to you and say

Dear Mom and Dad, I'll send money
I'm so rich that it ain't funny
Well it ought to be more than enough to get you through
Please don't worry 'cause I'm all right
See I'm stayin' here at the Ritz tonight
Whatta ya know, it made our dreams come true
And there are fancy cars and diamond rings
But I know that they don't mean a thing
Well they don't add up to nothin' compared to you
Remember me in ribbons and curls
I still love you more than anything in the world
Love your Baby Girl

Your Baby Girl
Your Baby Girl
