lyrics

Sally was a silver-spoon Sunday School girl.
She grew up in the heart of an air-conditioned Wal*Mart world.
Her daddy had a mansion, a suburbian expansionist home,
but even country girls still want to roam ’cause

the bright lights of the city at night
will rain down like a curse on a small town.
The music’s swinging and bringing the pretty girls
so the fellas will get up and get out and get on the train
going downtown.

Sally couldn’t see a future past the end of her nose.
She set out for the stars with some pumps and a bag full of clothes.
She set her sights on the lights and the action of the shows,
but Sally never made it to the road.

He drives a Lex, but he’s looking for sex,
cheap whiskey and a bag full of happiness.
He’ll suck you in with a sinister grin, a
stick pin, and a spin that you’re gonna win if you
go downtown.

(Instrumental)

Your fishnets look a mess, but baby
you better sell or your daddy going to raise hell.
He gives you money, but honey your daddy don’t give a
damn unless you got a Johnny and you’re
going downtown.

Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
