Mamas Gumbo By Karen Keane
Verse 1: To make Mamas Gumbo, first you make a roux. The smell will make you cry; yes you know that its true. Throw in some chittlins then you wait til it browns And then you add dish soap and you stir it around.
Chorus: Mamas Gumbo it cures the common cold, Clears up the sinuses and kills black mold, Stops poison ivy and it unclogs tub Makes your hair grow girl, give it a rub
Verse 2: Next comes the floor wax, just a little bit, Then comes the goo from the science kit, Your friends leave the house when it starts to smell The dogs start to bark and the cats began to wail.
Verse 3: A splash of some vinegar and motor oil too Hurry up right now before the cows start to moo. You get a big glass and you pour it on ice And then you sprinkle in some hot Cajun spice.
Verse 4: Well stir it all around like Mama used to do Shed take a big whiff when shes feelin real blue It smoothes out her lines and her wrinkles too Just ask Mama cause she aint twenty-two.

enjoyed it Karen, good job.
I remember this video. Karen Since you changed it now you need to make a new video of it.
Love the bluesy solo in the middle, and craaaaazy good bends at the end!
Did you post the lyrics somewhere?- I can't quite make out all the words, but it sounds like they are worth knowing.
Hey Brian, glad your back with us, and I'm so sorry to hear about Astro. John and I had a cat that we got when we were first married and we had him for 14 years before he passed. It is very difficult when you lose a member of your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Hi Karen! Thank you. I hope to post another vid soon. I've been out of the country up until last Sunday, and then the day after I got home my crazy Cockateil Astro died. I had him quite literally since he was an egg 28 years ago. :( Just haven't felt much like playing anything yet.
Thanks Brian, I'm glad that you enjoyed! When are you gonna post another vid? I missing listening to your music. Is everything OK with you?
Karen, this was great. I really enjoyed listening to it. I agree with Geek - great style different from, but compatible with, John's. Thanks for sharing! :)
Thanks Geek, I'm glad somebody agrees with me! LOL
LOL!!! Y'all ain't right.
I did too, take Lord Voldemort's suggestion for a little while, but ultimately decided to change it!!
Stephanie, I made ONE suggestion about this tune...just one, and she didn't take it lol.
Thanks Geekling for the comparison. I think I was definitely influence a little by YOU KNOW WHO. What a great compliment. Thanks
My image of wonder woman is ruined forever, LOL She'll never be the same again.
Thanks for the phone call and the words of encouragement. It's great to have a friend that cares so deeply about others and the craft we are trying so hard to master. It really means a lot to both John and myself. Thanks so much!!!!
HEY YOU...GET OFF THE CAR!... : ) ....
This is a great tune Karen. It's nice to hear a musically educated person play the dulcimer for a change! Like I mentioned on the phone I sure like them notes at 1:20
PS: I love the Dillards music from that show too. (The Darling's rule!!!)
