John J Nazarian: Sing it Charlie

The disruptive and painful experience that we call DIVORCE in this country has been well documented. Very well documented in the world of Country Music, one of my favorite listening pleasure, “Old School”. Country Music royalty, Tammy Wynette and her recording of “D.I.V.O.R.C.E.” was a huge hit in the late 60’s and continues to be today.

All of the same issues are present today as back when those songs were written. One of my favorites is “See the Big Man Cry Momma”, this is as good today as it was when it was written by Ed Bruce and first released in 1964. One of my favorite verse is, “But the judge had said I could never see them for the things I’d said and done”. As I said earlier, some things never change and judges are still issuing orders that for some seem tough. And to be perfectly honest they are very tough on both parties at times. If you get a chance go check out the version I have listed with Charlie Louvin singing the song.

One of my all time favorites is “She got the Goldmine (I got the shaft)” written by Dubois Timothy James and sung into history by Jerry Reed. “I’ll never forget the good times we had cause I am reminded every month when I send her the child support”. Say what you will as to the lay of the land, but it does seem the same thoughts and misery have been going on for at least 100 years. Much of what is sung in this song is as relevant today as it was again, when it was written.

Now if you are not a Country Music fan then that too is fine and I, as I always state, it is my opinion that counts. Who can disagree with the three songs I selected as not being as relevant today as back in the day?

The other day I walked out on the street
I happened to see
A pretty young woman a little bitty boy
And he looked back at me

See the big man cry momma
That’s what I heard him say
See the big man cry momma
He looks like his heart will break

I followed them to a pet shop window
The little boy stopped to see
He looked up at her said if I had a daddy
He’d buy that puppy for me

See the big man cry momma
That’s what I heard him say
See the big man cry momma
He looks like his heart will break

I wanted to tell him I was his dad
And he sure had a pretty mom
“BUT THE JUDGE HAD SAID I COULD NEVER
SEE THEM FOR THE THINGS I’D SAID AND DONE “

See the big man cry momma
That’s what I heard him say
See the big man cry momma
He looks like his heart will break

Son as you grow older
You’ll find someone who is dear
Just stick by her take care of her
And you will never hear

See the big man cry momma
That’s what I heard him say
See the big man cry momma
He looks like his heart will break

This was written by Ed Bruce and sung and performed by Charlie Louvin
Released in 1964
