Lyrics

They say this town the stars stay up all night, Well I don't know, can't see 'em, Through glow of the neon lights Well 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... [CHORUS] 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 in this town I'm going to make our dreams come true. Well I love you more than anything in the world, Love your baby girl Black top, blue skies big town full of little white lies, 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

[repeat CHORUS] 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 in this town I'm going to 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, I'll know that 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 because I'm alright See I'm staying here at the Ritz tonight What do ya know it made our dreams come true And there are fancy cars and diamond rings But you know that they don't mean a thing 'Cause 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 Your baby girl (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) Your baby girl (Please don't worry 'cause I'm alright, See I'm playing here at the bar tonight -Dreams come true.)
