Gene Watson - You Gave Me a Mountian

rate me

(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...
