Lyrics

She's leaving everything she knows, and she's headed for the coast
Just a beat up old guitar and whatever she could fit into her car
Frightened and excited, never been out on her own
But she's been waiting for this day
Ain't that just the way the story goes?
She's gonna make it in LA

Mom and Dad don't understand; this is not what they had planned
But there just ain't no compromise to a girl with starry eyes
And it's not easy trading country life for a chance to make a name
But ain't that just the way the story goes?
She's gonna make it in LA

Sometimes she misses those quiet, moonlit nights
And she has trouble sleeping beneath the neon lights
I guess it's worth it
I guess it's worth the sacrifice

Now, she's been serving beers for oh so many years
And she hears familiar schemes - brand new faces, same ol' dreams
And to this very day, she never misses open calls
Even though she's turning grey
And ain't that just the way the story goes?
And ain't that just the way the story goes?
And ain't that just the way the story goes?
She's gonna make it in LA
