Irish Mother Son Dance Song...my son or something

Can someone help? FMIL wants this song & I heard it about 6 months ago (she has a tape) but we don't know the name of it. It's an Irish guy singer and its something about the mom 'singing' to the son about the son (I know not much to go on)

Hey Cindy...

You're right, it's called 'My Son.' It is fairly popular on the Irish-American scene, so any good DJ should have it. It has been recorded by Pat Roper (personally, I'm not a fan of his voice) or by Andy Cooney.

Re: Irish Mother Son Dance Song...my son or something

Does anyone have a link to the lyrics or music? I'm looking online unsuccessfully, I want to forward to our band & make sure they have the right song or FMIL will flip!

My Son ()
Author: L.Reed/Roberts
Copyright: D.J.M. Music

My son, you were the seed of life in me
and now, I can’t believe the man I see
with pride, I watched you grow up
you wanted so much to change the world for me

My son, you gave my simple life its key
Through you I see God’s love and mystery
you build up my life with your sweet music
It’s written in the song, this melody belongs
to you and me my son

My son, I taught you everything I know
for soon, one day I’ll have to let you go
I would gladly die, if it saved you from the heartache
the fear and all the bad breaks
that tear your world apart

My son, you faced the truth and you stood tall
but now we face the hardest truth of all
I must say goodbye, but you must go on living
and when my life is through I’ll always be with you
my one and only son....
I watch you now with pride
what more is there to life
than you and me my son?

Re: Irish Mother Son Dance Song...my son or something

I don't, but I would definitely go with the Andy Cooney version. the Pat Roper version personally makes me cringe! (I sing, so I am a bit picky, but go with Andy COoney). I would ask if your DJ has it... if not, go into any Irish import shop, they should have a CD with Irish wedding songs, or an Andy Cooney album with it on it...

Also try : www.regorecords.com

They are an Irish record label and have tons of CD's. Save yourself some time and go right to the Irish Wedding LInk on the left hand side and it will give you all the Wedding CDs. You can order online and see what songs are on each CD before you order.
