Story behind the song
This one is a cover song by Jann Arden Richards and Robert Foster. I heard a high school friend of mine, Emma Rundle (Emma Snow of Clearchanneled) sing it, and I looked up the chords online and started singing it at home for my own enjoyment. My Mother, of course, loved the song and suggested I record it. Studio recorded at 17 years old with Todd Chapman in Los Angeles.
Lyrics
Good Mother by Robert Foster & Jann Arden Richards I've got money in my pocket I like the color of my hair I've got a friend who loves me Got a house, I've got a car I've got a good mother and her voice is what keeps me here Feet on ground Heart in hand Facing forward Be yourself I've never wanted anything No I've, no I've, I've never wanted anything so bad...so bad Cardboard masks of all the people I've been thrown out with all the rusted, tangled dented God Damned miseries You could say I'm hard to hold But if you knew me you'd know I've got a good father And his strength is what makes me cry Feet on ground Heart in hand Facing forward Be yourself I've never wanted anything No I've, no I've, I've never wanted anything so bad... so bad I've got money in my pocket I like the color of my hair I've got a friend who loves me Got a house, I've got a car I've got a good mother and her voice is what keeps me here Feet on ground Heart in hand Facing forward Be yourself Heart in hand Feet on ground Facing forward Be yourself just be yourself just be yourself Feet on ground Heart in hand Feet on ground Heart in hand
