Love Your Baby Girl Lyrics

by Sugarland

They say this town's 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 alright"

"See I'm playing here at the bar tonight
Well, 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
Well, everybody's your friend, you can never be sure
They'll promise fancy cars and diamond rings
And all sorts of shiny things
But 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 alright"

"See I'm playing here at the bar tonight
Well, 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
When I can tell every time I play
And I know it's worth all the dues I payed
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 alright"

"See I'm staying here at the Ritz tonight
What do 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"

"Well, they all add up to nothing compared to you
But remember me in ribbons and curls
I still love you more than anything in the world
Love, your baby girl"

Your baby girl
(Dear mom and dad, please send money)
(I'm so broke that it ain't funny)
(Don't need much just enough to get me through)
Your baby girl
(Please don't worry 'cause I'm alright)
(Playing here at the bar tonight)
(Dreams come true)
