At the corner cafe
She scrapes some quarters off the table
Says, "Thanks, yeah now maybe I'll be able, to get that black Mercedes I've been savin' for"
The other girls say, "You oughta undo a couple buttons, start showin' off a little somethin'"
She says, "Naw, you go ahead, think I'd rather stay poor. See I'm just makin' rent..."
She said, "This ain't where my road ends, this may not be my town, but it'll do for now til I can figure out who I am, where I'm goin'..."

She's slingin' eggs and bacon
With a college education
Just hangin' out and waitin' for a better plan
She's okay not knowin', she's young
And the world's wide open

There's a rusty old Ford
Lives out back behind the diner
Sittin' there waitin' on her to make her mind up
Itchin' to sling a little gravel
Take her who knows where
Maybe head out west
It's in God's hands I guess
This may not be my town
It'll do for now
Til I can figure out who I am, where I'm goin'

She's slingin' eggs and bacon
With a college education
Just hangin' out and waitin' for a better plan
She's okay not knowin', she's young
And the world's wide open

She throws down that apron
Takes the money she's been makin'
Her life's out there waitin'
Got a better plan
That's where she's goin' (goin')
She's young
And the world's wide open
