Trying To Be a Woman

A young girl will dream of the city,
Dream like a child of a man to love,
She goes down in some big town and makes a lot of friends
Trying to be a woman with a man, trying to be a woman with a man
When she was just turning 16
She was as bright as a new made dime.
Now that she is almost 20 she has a made a lot of friends.
Trying to be a woman with man, trying to be a woman with a man
A young girl goes down to the airport
Looks for a man who has missed his plane;
How could she known he would leave her the moment she began
Trying to be a woman with a man.
