Happy Mother’s Day. Love my Yimma: Jeannette in Fort Benton, Montana

<Roadmap for the May 9 Ark-Ive; 49 sec.>

Smile Jamaica Radio Ark-Ives; May 9, 2015 KRCL 90.9FM SLC, Utah; krcl.org. Robert Nelson by Bobbylon on Mixcloud

Greetings,

Happy Mother’s Day! Gonna start the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives May 9, 2015 with a great Mother’s Day tune.

Tammy Wynette did the Country original. Sonya Spence the Reggae version. Every Mother’s Day Saturday, I will play this tune. It brings this blackheart nearly to tears thinking about the love for my own Yimma – (Mother in Assyrian), Jeannette living in Fort Benton, Montana.

Tammy Wynette – No Charge

<Sonya Spence’s Reggae version of “No Charge”; 54 sec.>

My little girl came up to me in the kitchen this evenin’
While I was fixing supper
And she handed me a piece of paper she’d been writin’ on
And after wipin’ my hands on my apron I read it, and this is what it said

For mowin’ the yard, five dollars
For makin’ my own bed this week, one dollar
Goin’ to the store, fifty cents
Playin’ with little sister while you went to the store, twenty-five cents

Takin’ out the trash, one dollar
Gettin’ a good report card, five dollars
And for rakin’ the yard, two dollars
Total owed, fourteen dollars and seventy-five cents

Well, I looked at her standin’ there expectantly
And a thousand memories flashed through my mind
And so I picked up the pen, and turnin’ the paper over
This is what I wrote

For the nine months I’ve carried you growin’ inside me, no charge
For the nights I’ve sat up with you, doctored you, prayed for you, no charge
For the ties, folding clothes and for wipin’ your nose, there’s no charge
When you add it all up, the full cost of my love is, no charge

Well, when she finished readin’ she had great big old tears in her eyes
And she looked up at me and said, “Mommy, I sure do love you”
Then she took the pen and in great big letters she wrote, ‘Paid in full’
When you add it all up, the cost of real love is, no charge

  • Tryin’ to find the ocean
    Lookin’ everywhere

Hard times in the city
In a hard town by the sea
Ain’t nowhere to run to
There ain’t nothin’ here for free

Hooker on the corner
Waitin’ for a train
Drunk lyin’ on the sidewalk
Sleepin’ in the rain

And they hide their faces
And they hide their eyes
’cause the city’s dyin’
And they don’t know why

Oh, baltimore
Man, it’s hard just to live
Oh, baltimore
Man, it’s hard just to live, just to live

Get my sister sandy
And my little brother ray
Buy a big old wagon
Gonna haul us all away

Livin’ in the country
Where the mountain’s high
Never comin’ back here
’til the day I die

Oh, baltimore
Man, it’s hard just to live
Oh, baltimore
Man, it’s hard just to live, just to live
