Sally was a girl from Wichita
Pretty little jewel with Cheshire smile
Grew up in the heart of a trailer park
No one there to raise her but her big bad Pa

Daddy had a streak like a lightnin’ bolt
Sally took the brunt as his whipping post
Waited ‘til the day she turned 16
Got up in the morning, yeah she split that scene

I guess she knew it all along

Made for the border down on Highway 1
Man, that girl knew how to make some fun
Free as a bird, oh yeah she’d spread her wings
Take ‘em round the world, oh yeah she knew her thing

Oh yeah, she knew it all along

Better never compromise
Sally open up their eyes
Better never compromise

Truck Stop Sally won’t you look my way
Drop dead midnight ‘til the break of day
Sing a sweet song with your mouth on fire
Brokenheart a man like a blown out tire

I guess I knew it all along

    General CommentI think it's a coming-of-age. The girl leaves home, ditches her abusive father, and hooks up with a guy and they have sex and procreate.

    General Commentand then she ditches him too.

    the message is: family is the most important thing in life, but only when the two people involved in creating the children are actually in love and will never leave each other no matter what.
