Music – 1981 – Willie Nelson’s & The Over The Rainbow Band – In My Mothers Eyes – Sung Live At ACL

Willie Nelson and The Over The Rainbow Band featuring the likes of Johnny Gimble on fiddle, Freddy Powers on rhythm guitar and Dean Buskirk on lead guitar play the song “In My Mother’s Eyes” live at Austin City Limits in 1981…..as the words of this song pretty well sums up the feelings of every person on Earth about their Mom….so, see if you don’t agree with us as follows:

One bright and guiding light
That taught me wrong from right
I found in my mother’s eyes

Those baby tales she told
Of streets are paved with gold
I found in my mother’s eyes

Just like a wandering sparrow
One lonely soul
I walk the straight and narrow
Just to reach my goal

God’s gift sent from above
A real unselfish love
I found in my mother’s eyes
Just like a wandering sparrow

One lonely soul
I walk the straight and narrow
Just to reach my goal

God’s gift sent from above
Just a real unselfish love
I found in my mother’s eyes                                                                                                                               

The truth be known…..it was songs like this one that endeared Willie Nelson to so many people….for it was a simple song about someone that everyone could relate to….and no matter who, they all found the same in their mother’s eyes.
