- Jul 1, 2009no, but the attitude is understandably similar. The latin theme is too evident in this song you're suggesting, I think.

That must be the one, I found 26 versions on eMusic, and it's very likely
that the Cajun Mama Rosin was a corruption (with a simplified bridge), since
one of the 26 has the altenative title "Oh don José" (and "José" with
Spanish pronunciation is very close to a de-nasalized "Rosin")
Anyway, here's a gorgeous clip, to check it is the same song as the one
which starts at 4:54
Finding an online version of Mama Rosin is more difficult, all related
videos are deceiving and don't provide the original melody.
All I found was a sample by Nathan Abshire from the French page
(click on the loudspeaker in the middle to listen ("Ecouter") if the page is
not automatically translated)
