I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down Lyrics

Subject: Definitive(?) Can't Stand Up
The reason I'm so certain about these lyrics is that at a record show years
ago, I bought a battered copy of Sam and Dave's version. It's done in a
stately gospel style that Elvis later adopted for concert performances of the
song. Here goes: (minor correctios by Paul Hosken (rmcb@vm.op.dlr.de))
I'm the living result
Of a man who's been hurt a little too much
And I've tasted
The bitterness of my own tears
Sadness is all my lonely heart can feel
I can't stand up etc.
Simple though love is,
still it confused me
Why I'm not loved the way I should be
Now I've lived with heartaches
and I've roomed with fear
I've dealt with despair
And I've wrestled with tears
I can't stand up etc.
The vow that we made,
you broke it in two
but that don't stop me
from loving you
I can't stand up etc.
