The mountains are majestic enough by themselves but it's the people there that's worth writing about... more The mountains are majestic enough by themselves but it's the people there that's worth writing about. This song has that ability to transcend geography to person. I had the same feeling when visiting the Austrian Alps and playing songs at Hotel Solaria and other places using borrowed guitars. The ties that bind are the songs that relate those feelings of belonging and somehow the mountains bring out those thoughts strong enough to write about. It is genuine and honest in lyric and tempo with dobro and brushes makes me smell the cool crisp freshness that is mountain country.

This song was written with pure intentions and conveys the good memories only a mother can leave... The Lyrics bring home the importance of mothers and the selfless contributions they make in shaping our lives while growing up. Mike portrays this sentiment perfectly with his touching lyrics such as "In remembrance of the one who filled our home so full of life..." and "there's a marker on a piece of ground and on that marker..." also "so many years shes been gone now and all her love still in my heart..." and painfully the lyric "I wasn't there to say my last good-byes and it still haunts me..." are wonderful and to the point beautiful mementos of a dear mother. Mike has a great country singing voice and I enjoyed the sincerity of this heart felt performance the listener hears the honestly of his lyric and sadness in the tone of his voice. The melody and arraignment is perfection for this type of song accompanied by excellent guitars, slide guitar and over all skilled instrumental performances. I thoroughly enjoyed "A Single Yellow Rose" Great Job!
