  1. Earth Mama
In cart Not available Out of stock

Earth Mama is a song portraying my love for Mother Earth, my respect for the indigenous people who were here long before the white man, and my desire to live in peace and balance with all people and with creation.
Another version of this song appeared on my previous album, "Rhythm of the Road" (2016 - also available for listening and download below), but I always had a special attachment to this acoustic version, so decided to include it in this collection also.

Lyrics

Earth Mama / Susan B. Shann / © 2014

I believe in sacred signs and intuitions
I believe Heaven and Hell are places in our own souls
If I can give my heart in a love without condition (my suspicion is)
That’s the closest thing to Heaven I’ll ever know
When it comes to money and material things
Honey, I don’t care - just let me sing
Gonna find me a little piece of land somewhere
Where my friends can come, we’ll be happy there

‘Cause I’m an Earth Mama, child of the sun
Wanna sit by a river, watch it run
I'm a hippie-chick sister, guaranteed
You won’t find nobody gonna love you like me

I bow my head to the ones who were here before us
Whose blood was shed in the fight for their own land
Their voices ring through the trees like a mighty chorus
Reminding me all our deeds are gonna come back around again

That’s why I’m an Earth Mama, child of the sun
Wanna live in peace, don’t wanna hurt no one
A hippie-chick sister, guaranteed
You won’t find nobody gonna love you like me

When my days are over, and I lay me down
I’m gonna give my body to that sacred ground
If I should ever come back again someday
You know, I still wouldn’t have it any other way

I’d be an Earth Mama, child of the sun
I’d sit by a river and watch it run
I’d be a hippie-chick sister, guaranteed
You won’t find nobody gonna love you...
Like this Earth Mama, child of the sun
Wanna live in peace, don’t wanna hurt no one
A hippie-chick sister, guaranteed
You won’t find nobody gonna love you,
Whose gonna love you...
Gonna love you like me, gonna love you like me
Gonna love you like me
