Song of the Day: The Highwaymen “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys”

Today I am sitting in a coffee shop down the street from the Carlsbad flower fields here in SoCal because there is no internet at my house. It’s just one of the adventures in San Diego real estate. Meh.

Anyway, this song, “Mamas Don’ Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys” came on and I found myself swaying at my table for one. I think Willie Nelson’s twang-y voice is perfect for this. And who doesn’t love Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson?
