about

This song was written while drawing inspiration from Brad growing up in the small coastal town of Bay City, Texas. Matagorda County had a Rice Festival every year and crowned a Rice Queen.

lyrics

She was the rice queen, in a small town, seventeen
A ride through main street, on a float of blue, and gold and gleaming
White smiles and cup your palm, the sun behind, your silhouette
This means everything, to you now

Everything they say, about small town girls
Everything they say, about smaller towns

Take her mothers car, for a joyride, while she was sleeping
Lights off, driving by the moonlight, while she was speeding
Sung a hymn in church, on sunday, with a glossy smile
heard the hallelujahs echo

Everything they say, about small town girls
Everything they say, about smaller towns

Laid under the sun, the waves kept buzzing, in her ear
The sea side air smelled of coconuts, and her boyfriend’s beer
Like a rip tide, was a small voice, pulling gently
Only asking for everything

Everything they say, about small town girls
Everything they say, about smaller towns
Everything they say, about small town girls
Everything they say, about smaller towns

Everything they say, about small town girls
Everything they say, about smaller towns
Everything they say, about small town girls
Everything they say, about smaller towns
