Dear Mama

One of my favorite songs by the Carter Sisters and Johnny Cash  video

Dear, Mama, now that we’re older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you’re a trooper, Mama you’re a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me

She always got me out of bed early Sunday morn’
And took me out to church
where I could learn about Lord
Mama tried to tell me how my life was gonna be
But I was young and wild,
and it was hard for me to see

Dear Mama, now that we’re older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you’re a trooper, Mama you’re a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me

Mama, I want to tell you one thing for sure:  you always taught us right from wrong when we were younger. And if we had listened to you then i know we would have saved ourselves a lot of problems. Now that we’ve grown up and we’re all so much older, we realize that you always knew exactly what you were talkin’ about, Mama. And you sure do mean a lot to all of us.

Dear Mama, now that we are older
We can see the load on your tired old shoulders
Mama you’re a trooper, Mama you’re a soldier
Mama, you mean a lot to me
Mama, you mean a lot to me

‘Nuff said.
