–I post this tonight with my daughter’s boyfriend in mind. He is a 16 year old young man who lost his only sibling, his older brother, to cancer 3 years ago. Still struggling with this huge loss, he faced last week the death of a friend who was an adult mentor, who passed untimely at 56 yrs old.–
Mama told me when I was young
“Come sit bedside me my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this
It will help you some sunny day.
Take your time…don’t live too fast,
Troubles will come and they will pass.
Go find a woman and you’ll find love,
And don’t forget son,
There is someone up above.”
More of the Dusty Box collection. Very impressionable music during my formative years. Considering the tragic demise of this iconic band, the lyrics were those of a simple man – and why I marinated myself in their music.
Can you name that song? 1973 written by Gart Rossington & Ronnie Van Zant
* Double Dog Dare to other Skynyrd peeps: Add more of the lines to the song or name other songs on this album. (Ahh, try not to cheat and google – )
The pics are from my album sitting with all the others.
