Mama Tried

We appreciate the symbol Steven Ziaja posted on his Facebook, we couldn't have said it better.  We do not understand how Alabama Law Enforcement Officer Steven Ziaja invested $846,000.00 into the Title Marts and his girlfriend Sheriff Ana Franklin invested $150,000.00.  There is only one word to describe their behavior.  UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!  I bet they were also surprised that Greg Steenson was charged and convicted of a kite scheme involving a used car dealership that cheated local banks out of approximately 8.5 million dollars.

Dedicated to Steven Ziaja

Lyrics
The first thing I remember knowing
Was a lonesome whistle blowing
And a young'un's dream of growing up to ride
On a freight train leaving town
Not knowing where I'm bound
And no one could change my mind but Mama tried
One and only rebel child
From a family meek and mild
My mama seemed to know what lay in store
Despite all my Sunday learning
Towards the bad I kept on turning
Till Mama couldn't hold me anymore
And I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole
No one could steer me right but Mama tried, Mama tried
Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading I denied
That leaves only me to blame 'cause Mama tried
Dear old Daddy, rest his soul
Left my mom a heavy load
She tried so very hard to fill his shoes
Working hours without rest
Wanted me to have the best
She tried to raise me right but I refused
And I turned twenty-one in prison doing life without parole
No one could steer me right but Mama tried, Mama tried
Mama tried to raise me better, but her pleading I denied
That leaves only me to blame 'cause Mama tried
