sugarland


They say this town
The stars stay up all night
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.
I don't need much just enough to get me through.
Please don't worry cause I'm alright
I'm playing 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

Black top, 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.
I don't need much just enough to get me through.
Please don't worry cause I'm alright
I'm playing 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
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
It ought ta be more than enough to get you through
Please don't worry cause I'm alright
I'm staying here at the Ritz tonight
What ta ya know we made our dreams come true!
And there are fancy cars and diamond rings
But you know that they don't mean a thing
They all add up to nothing compared to you
Well, remember me in ribbons and curls
I still love you more than anything in the world.
Love,
Your baby girl
Baby girl
Baby girl
