The great thing about Country music is that every song tells a story. Son Of Hickory Holler’s Tramp is a tale of love for a mother despite her occupation.
“When Mama sacrificed her pride the neighbours started talking” told us all we needed to know about this woman.
Or did it?
One chorus continues:
“Last summer Mama passed away and left the ones who loved her
Each and every one was more than grateful for their birth
Each Sunday she receives a fresh bouquet of fourteen roses
And a card that says The greatest Mom on earth"
Powerful words, with a powerful message.
