泰勒•斯威夫特，美国乡村音乐女创作歌手，会用木吉他、钢琴演奏。她在2006年与独立唱片公司Big Machine签约。曾获得美国乡村音乐协会奖年度最佳专辑奖等荣誉。Brought Up That Way是泰勒在网上被泄露出来的一首美国乡村音乐风格的歌曲。听这首歌的时候会发现这首歌别具一格，整首歌像是讲述一个小女孩在父亲的教育下长大的故事，但在这样简单的故事中我们却不难发现emily和父亲之间朴实却深厚的亲情。
Emily comes home from school, grabs onto her daddy's hand
He says, "Baby girl, what's wrong with you?"
She says, "Please don't make me go back there again."
She said, "I wish there was someway to make them stop it."
So he drives down to that principles office
And says, "I didn't bring her up so they could cut her down
I didn't bring her here so they could shut her out
I'd live my whole damn life to see that little girl smile
So why are tears pouring down that sweet face?
She wasn't brought up that way."
Emily's home late again, he sees that boy drive away
Oh but something's different this time
She doesn't have too much to say
She said, "He tried but there's just some things I won't do"
And through the tears she said, "I couldn't do that to you"
And he said, "I didn't bring you up so he could wear you down
Take that innocent heart and turn it inside out
I'd live my whole damn life to see my little girl smile
So don't let nobody take that away
You weren't brought up that way."
The phone rings on a rainy night, says, "It's Officer Tate"
He said, "Sir, there's been an accident, you'd better come down here right away
A drunken driver missed an overpass, and Emily she's fading fast."
He says, "God I didn't bring her up to watch them lay her down
Nearly killed me the day they put her mama in the ground
Only thing that kept me alive was that little girls smile
So please don't take that away
It won't be easy taking her today, she wasn't brought up that way."
He stands over the hospital bed, Emily opens her eyes
