Brother's in the backyard diggin' in the dirt
Mama's in the kitchen in an old t-shirt
Daddy's diesel's coming up the street
And she's in her bedroom growing her wings

Ready to Run in her headphones
Pretty in pink on all ten toes
Nose in a Cosmo magazine
All the junk mama says, she's too young to read
Little do they know she's growing her wings

They got her whole life on lockdown
Doing time behind her bedroom door
I guess it's alright for right now
But outside her window there's so much
More room for running and space to discover
A whole wide world to see
She's dreaming about the girl she's gonna be
Stuck in Rice County, growing her wings

The neighbor boy taught her how to French kiss
And daddy's got eyes in the back of his head
He said, no dating 'til you're 18
Now she's in her room grounded, growing her wings

They got her whole life on lockdown
Doing time behind her bedroom door
I guess it's alright for right now
But outside her window there's so much
More room for running and space to discover
A whole wide world to see
She's dreaming about the girl she's gonna be
Stuck in Rice County, growing her wings

She wants to fly and never look down
But tonight she's tucked inside a tiny little town
In a little twin bed all safe and sound

And there's so much
More room for running and space to discover
A whole wide world to see
She's dreaming about the girl that she's gonna be
Stuck in Rice County, growing her wings
Growing her wings

    This is a cute coming to age song. I think that its very relatable to a lot of girls and it will be one that you will love to sing along to.
