So far in this series we've remained within the comfortable, enclosing circle of family, home and faith. It can't always be like that, as you know, and so I feel the time has come to ease you into something a little more discordant - though still within the series theme. Randy Travis, the man with the best claim to have walked in George Jones's giant footsteps, sings 'Good Intentions':
Mama always prayed that I'd be a better man than daddyRead the rest to find out how badly things can end when you go down a road like this.
And I determined not to let her down
Deserted by the man she loved and left to raise four children
We were the local gossip of the town.
I promised her that I'd live right and not be like the others
But I wound up in jail on Christmas day
I told her I'd be home and not to worry 'bout my brothers
When I got home my mom had passed away.
And I hear tell the road to hell is paved with good intentions
But mama my intentions were the best
There's lotsa things in my life I'd just as soon not mention
Looks like I've turned out like all the rest
But mama my intentions were the best.
