Gene Watson - You Gave Me a Mountian Lyrics

(Marty Robbins)

Born in the heat of the desert my mother died giving me life
Deprived of the love of a father blamed for the loss of his wife
You know Lord I've been in a prison for something I've never done
It's been one hill after another but I've climbed them all one by one.

But this time you gave me a mountain
A mountain that I may never climb
And it isn't a hill any longer
You gave me a mountain this time.

My woman got tired of the hardships tired of the grief and the strife
So tired of working for nothing tired of being my wife
She took my one ray of sunshine she took my pride and my joy
She took my reason for living oh she took my small baby boy.

So this time Lord, you gave me a mountain
A mountain that I may never climb
And it isn't a hill any longer
You gave me a mountain this time.

You gave me a mountain this time...
