  • Lyrics
  • This tune about her hometown of Toledo in Ohio was written by 2010 American Idol runner up, Crystal Bowersox, before her tenure on the program. The song was played on the May 19, 2009 Top 3 Results show as the background music for her homecoming package, when Bowersox returned to Toledo. It was the first ever instance of a contestant's own song being performed almost in its entirety on Idol.
