This is the 1st Mother’s day I do not have a mother to call. In reality my in-laws are closer to me than my mother and father were. It is funny how life works out, but I thought this song is a good representation of my life — in musical form. In fact, this is more biographical of myself than Merle Haggard.
A magic moment in California. Merle Haggard sings the classic “Mama tried” to his Mom.
