  • 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 ‘bout 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 eighteen
    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 ‘bout 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 ‘bout the girl that she’s gonna be
    Stuck in Rice County, growing her wings
