  • I can't wait to show you where I grew up
    Walk you 'round the foothills of my town
    Probably feel like you've been there before
    After hearing all the stories I've been telling you
    For six months now

    We'll probably have to sleep in separate bedrooms
    Pack a shirt for church because we'll go
    I'm not trying to scare you off but
    I just thought that we should talk a few things out
    Before we hit the road

    If I bring you home to mama
    I guess I'd better warn ya
    She falls in love a little faster than I do
    And my dad will check your tires
    Pour you whiskey over ice and
    Take you fishing but pretend that he don't like you
    Oh, if we break up, I'll be fine
    But you'll be breaking more hearts than mine

    My sister's gonna ask a million questions
    Say anything she can to turn you red
    And when you meet my high school friends
    They'll buy you drinks and fill you in
    On all the crazy nights I can't outlive

    So if I bring you home to mama
    I guess I'd better warn ya
    She falls in love a little faster than I do
    And my dad will check your tires
    Pour you whiskey over ice and
    Buy you dinner but pretend that he don't like you
    Oh, if we break up, I'll be fine
    But you'll be breaking more hearts than mine

    (Oh, oh)
    (Mmm)

    If I bring you home to mama
    I guess I'd better warn ya
    She feels every heartache I go through
    And if my dad sees me crying
    He'll pour some whiskey over ice and
    Tell a lie and say he never really liked you
    Oh, if we break up, I'll be fine
    But you'll be breaking more hearts than mine
    You'll be breaking more hearts than mine Writer/s: Derrick Adam Southerland, Ingrid Andress, Sam Mackenzie Ellis

  • Rupanuga Das from Dallas, TxBeautiful, moving lyrics, Ingrid. First heard the song performed by "Girl Named Tom," on The Voice. I found your performance last night, and fell in love with the song for the second time. My congratulations to you and your two cohorts! Keep on writing.
