Does anyone know if the Tribute to Maybelle Carter song, "Dear Momma" appears on any of the Carter or Cash CDs? If so..which one?

The song is actually titled "A Song To Mama" (Johnny Cash mistakenly calls it "Dear Mama" when they sung it on his tv show back in 1971)and it is on the CD "COUNTRY BY THE CARTER FAMILY". It was a modest hit for The Carter Family in 1971. You can also purchase the song individually at several websites such as Amazon and the lyrics are also on the net.

The song "A Song to Mama" was originally included on the Carter Family's album called "Travelin' Minstrel Band."
