Claudia Church — Small Town Girl lyrics

(James Dean Hicks/Claudia Church)

Her mama hangs up the clothes on the line
Wearin' a smile while she's doing it
Her daddy makes a living one day at a time
For 23 years he's come through with it
But she's 17 and dreams of so much more
Than a restless heart
A rusted-out car
And a job at the local food store

She's a small town girl
With big city dreams
She pictures herself
On Vogue Magazine
Well that mountain ahead
Aint as high as it seems
For a small town girl
With big city dreams

Her best friend's crazy
About a football star
When she gets out of school
She's gonna marry him
Sometimes she wishes
She was more like her
Without this ambition she's carrying
But her mind runs away
When she lays down at night
How to get there from here
It all seems so clear
When she turns out the light

She's a small town girl
With big city dreams
She pictures herself
On Vogue Magazine
Well that mountain ahead
Aint as high as it seems
For a small town girl
With big city dreams

Her mama hangs the clothes on the line
Her daddy makes a living one day at a time

She's a small town girl
With big city dreams
She pictures herself
On Vogue Magazine
Well that mountain ahead
Aint as high as it seems
For a small town girl
With big city dreams

She's a small town girl
With big city dreams
