  • She grew up around here on that southwest side
    Where the corn grows up to the road side
    Went to high school here, got that Panther pride
    She'll be cheering them on every Friday night

    She couldn't hide her beauty with a baseball cap
    Couldn't help but shine with a heart like that
    New York called when she turned 21
    But she never forgot where she came from

    I need a pretty little homegrown hometown girl
    With a ribbon tying back those waterfall curls
    I've been looking all over, all over the world
    For a pretty little homegrown hometown girl

    Her mamma's mamma was born right here
    And her roots run deeper than that old town square
    She's a good girl but she's not uptight
    She can rise and shine and she can hang all night

    I need a pretty little homegrown hometown girl
    With a ribbon tying back those waterfall curls
    I've been looking all over, all over the world
    For a pretty little homegrown hometown girl

    She's got an old soul, she's the salt of the earth
    When she gives her love she knows what it's worth
    There's a lot of pretty girls out there to me
    But there's nothing like the one right across the street

    I need a pretty little homegrown hometown girl
    With a ribbon tying back those waterfall curls
    I've been looking all over, all over the world
    For a pretty little homegrown hometown girl
