  • She's gotta do what she's gotta do
    And I've gotta like it or not
    She's got dreams too big for this town
    And she needs to give them a shot
    Whatever they are

    Looks like she's all ready to leave
    Nothing left to pack
    There ain't no room for me in that car
    Even if she asked me to tag along
    God I gotta be strong

    She's at the starting line of the rest of her life
    As ready as she's ever been
    Got the hunger and the stars in her eyes
    The prize is hers to win
    She's waiting on my blessings before she hits that open road
    Baby get ready
    Get set
    Don't go

    She says things are fallen into place
    Feels like they're fallen apart
    I painted this big old smile on my face
    To hide my broken heart
    If only she knew
    This is where I don't say what I want so bad to say

    This is where I want to but I won't get in the way
    Of her and her dreams
    And spreading her wings

    She's at the starting line of the rest of her life
    As ready as she's ever been
    Got the hunger and the stars in her eyes
    The prize is hers to win
    She's waiting on my blessings before she hits that open road
    Baby get ready
    Get set
    Don't go

    She's at the starting line of the rest of her life
    As ready as she's ever been
    Got the hunger and the stars in her eyes
    The prize is hers to win
    She's waiting on my blessings before she hits that open road
    Baby get ready
    Get set
    Don't go

    Don't go
    Don't go
    She's gotta do what she's gotta do
    She's gotta do what she's gotta do Writer/s: BILLY CYRUS, CASEY BEATHARD

  • Dave from Cullman, AlThere's just something special about father-daughter duets...Neil and Dara...Conway and Jonie...Billy Rae and Miley. I'm not a big Miley fan, because I'm the wrong sex and four times too old, but this duet brought tears to my eyes.
