I found this song purely by accident when I was looking for something
else. What a great find it was too, don't you agree? I love the sound of it.

If you listen to the words you realise that what makes country music so
good is it's honesty and relevance to real life situations. 
During my working life, as a registered nurse, I found that there are a whole lot of
people out there who keep on making the same errors of judgement their whole
life through.  They never seem to learn by their mistakes and the lady in this song
is like that. I can just imagine how frustrating it must have been for her mother
every time her daughter was hurt and moved on yet again to repeat the
same scenario. Do YOU know anyone like that??

Hope you enjoy Mama's Waltz and also this lovely song by Lacey J Dalton.
See you on the floor sometime.....  Jan
