Hey guys! Believe it or not, Nash aka MDGarthGirl has inspired me once again. I wrote this song while talking to her online tonight, and it just kinda seemed to fit who she is...a great writer who is bound for Nashville. :) Anyway, thought I'd share it with ya'll. "Give me everything ya got, alright?" ;) It goes a little something like this....
<br>
<br>
<br>Opening Night
<br>
<br>Little country girl in her wranglers and boots
<br>Playin’ Tulsa City Limits and Incahoots
<br>Singin’ her heart out on every tune
<br>Hopin’ she’ll get her big break soon
<br>
<br>As she sings, she gets lost in the crowd
<br>She can’t help but think of a few years from now
<br>Ain’t it funny how fast things can change?
<br>Now she’s moved her show to a much bigger stage
<br>
<br>Who ever thought she’d get this far,
<br>After playing for years in a small town bar.
<br>Where the men drank and socialized
<br>And the women talked about their lives
<br>Never giving a chance to that girl on the stage,
<br>Singin’ about workin’, beers, and minimum wage
<br>Well here she is and it’s time to do this right
<br>She’s ready to go on opening night.
<br>
<br>She’s dressed in her best and can’t help but grin
<br>As the people pull up and start comin’ in
<br>This is what she’s dreamed since she was young
<br>But if she only knew that it’s just begun
<br>
<br>Bridge:
<br>And as the music starts to play she loses all fear
<br>Reaches to her face and wipes away a tear
<br>As she steps onto the stage, the crowd begins to cheer
<br>She’s never wanted to be, anywhere but here
<br>
<br>But who ever thought she’d get this far,
<br>After playing for years in a small town bar.
<br>Where the men drank and socialized
<br>And the women talked about their lives
<br>Never giving a chance to that girl on the stage,
<br>Singin’ about workin’, beers, and minimum wage
<br>Well here she is and it’s time to do this right
<br>She’s ready to go on opening night.

<br>By the way - I couldn't agree with you more on Nash making it to the "big times"!
