Youngstown young girl looking at the windshield at a big old world
And I'm proud of where I come from
But I've got a full tank of gas and I'm ready to run
So it's 563 miles to Nashville Tennessee!
And I know I gotta pay my dues
But I've got a song to sing and nothing to lose

[Chorus:]
So it's bye bye daddy,
Oh hello mother church!
Your long lost child is coming home!
Like Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline
I'll be ready when it's my time
And I'm, I'm proud, I'm scared
But I'm gonna show them when I get there
Ain't no running no backing down
In this young girl from Youngstown.

My heart is spinning like a wheel
But I got dreams made of steel!
Uhu eah, I ain't slowing down,
Uhu, uhu eah!
I'm a young girl but old enough
I'm gonna take that down and tear it up!
I'm running, I'm running I'm ready!

[Chorus:]
Bye bye daddy,
Oh hello mother church!
Your long lost child is coming home!
Like Sugarland and LeAnn Rimes
I'll be ready when it's my time
And I'm, I'm proud, I'm scared
But I'm gonna show them when I get there
Ain't no running, no backing down
In this young girl from Youngstown.
I won't back down, momma no no no!
