Jeff Myers -Acoustic Guitar, Vocal

Written for My Beautiful Mom.... She bravely Battled Cancer for a year, and she passed away January 3, 2009. She got to hear this song before she left to get her wings. I Love you Mom, I miss you so much!.......

There is an intentional nod to Lennon's "Julia" as he wrote it for his Mom...

A Coal Miners's Daughter born in fourty-three
A sweet West Virginia Destiny.
Four Brothers five Sisters Surrounded you
With the gift of love you made it through.

You met a fine man in nineteen sixty-two
He fell in Love with his sweet Mary Lou.
The two of you married back in sixty-three,
And soon you started a new family.

Oh Mom,
I'm a lucky man you raised me and made me who I am.
Mother Mary,
You will always stand right here next to me, you will always be with me..
Mother Mary....

We moved to a home in nineteen-seventy.
After working hard and saving.
I remember it well like it was just yesterday.
Your little Boy was sick and you made it go away....

Oh Mom,
I'm a lucky man you raised me and made me who I am.
Mother Mary,
You will always stand right here next to me, you will always be with me..
Mother Mary....

I'm now a man, your two sons have grown.
We have a family of our own.
Brother Mike and I try to be the best we can.
To Caitlin, Meghan, and sweet Aidan.

Oh Mom,
You're a Grandma now, you're blessed with three Grand Children .
Mother Mary
Sweet Memories will always stay with them,
We will always Love you, Our Angel Mary Lou.....

The Good Stuff Trois!!!
Just a beautiful song and a lovely tribute.


Road Movie..
Very pretty Finger-pickin' song utilising Lennons 'Julia' chords but giving it a breezy 70s freeway driving feel..Nice track


Lonesome Wolf Radio
Jeff lays out a very touching howl here in "Mother Mary" ... Hooooowwl yeah !!! ... beautiful tune Jeff


Adult Alternative Asylum
To My Mom, I Love you!

Another neat take on this lyrical idea is "The Way I Was Made" by Griffin House, a much maligned, underappreciated singer-songwriter.


+ IMP Memorial Garden +
My Mom passed away from Cancer at the beginning of the year. I wrote and recorded a Song for her that she was able to hear shortly before she died. [Mary Lou Myers - Feb 20 1943 -Jan 3 2009]
