WE JUST CALLED HER MOM

Verse: 1
A girl born in Texas
Raised in Georgia clay
Pushed on to Montana
To try and find her way
Daughter by her side
Where's their future lie
Would they find it underneath
That big Montana Sky

Chorus:
She's a woman mentor educator
MBA a wife and daughter
But of all the labels put upon her
We just called her mom

Verse: 2
Montana was good to her
She grew in many ways
A husband three more children
To brighten up her days
But she heard another calling
To Arizona they would go
So we loaded up the six of us
And quickly hit the road

Chorus:
She's a woman mentor educator
MBA a wife and daughter
But of all the labels put upon her
We just called her mom

Verse: 3
The years have passed to quickly
Your son and daughters we have left
But a silver lining in all things
With four grandsons you've been blessed
And we cherish all you've done for us
To help us on our quest
And we'd like to say that as a mom
You are the very best

Chorus:
She's a woman mentor educator
MBA a wife and daughter
But of all the labels put upon her
We just called her mom

Hey CT,

I woke up to this...Really heartfelt song. I could feel such powerful lyrics

To have someone who means so much to the family is awesome...

C. T.:

I believe you have a song (co-write) with a ton of potential. The lyric pulls the song center stage and as recorded, is perfect for small venue audiences. More instruments and possibly back-up singers here and there could provide leverage for the ladder to the top. Best wishes for success!

----Dave

CT,

Very nice lyrical movement, and a good music vibe for your story. Lots of options as Dave mentioned for further production which I agree could enhance the song. I have a couple of lyric sugs for you to ponder. I think "pushed" signifies that she's trying to escape strife--since that doesn't seem the case lyrically, why not say "she settled in Montana?" I would also substitute the word "for" - "for all the labels" instead of using "of all the labels." - JMO.

I enjoyed your performance--nice write and plenty of potential!

CT,

Really nice tune. Like the others, I’d love to hear a fuller production of this—think it could really take this up a few notches You’ve got a really sweet voice as well. Yeah, lots of potential on this one . . . though quite good as is. Good luck with it.

Kind regards,

Deej

Thanks Deej,
Love following you and your wonderful songs. Might have to look into a fuller production like you, Dave and Eddie suggest. Someday.
