Sugarland
Baby Girl

They say this town, stars stay up all night
Don't know, can't see them 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 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, 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 all right
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
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 oughtta be more than enough to get you through
Please don't worry 'cause I'm all right
See I'm staying here at the Ritz tonight
What do you 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 compare to you
Well, remember me in ribbons and curls
I still love you more than anything in the world
Love
Your baby girl. ah yeah

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 all right
Playing here at the bar tonight, uh, uh, uh
Dreams come true
