You Gave Me A Mountain Lyrics

Born in the heat of the desert
My mother died giving me life
Deprived of the love, the love of my father
I was blamed for the loss of his wife

You know, Lord, I've been in a prison
Oh, but for something that I, that I, I've never done
Well, it's been one hill right after another
Still I, I climbed them all one by one

But this time, Lord
Oh Lord, You gave me
You gave me a mountain, yes, You did
A mountain I, I may never climb

My woman got tired of the hardships
Tired of the grief and the strife
So tired, tired of working for nothing
Tired of even being, being my wife

She took my, my one ray of sunshine
She took my, my pride and my joy
She took my one reason for living
She took my small baby boy

So this time, Lord
Oh Lord, You gave me
You gave me a mountain, yes, You did, did, yeah
A mountain I may never climb

And it isn't
No, it isn't a hill, a hill any longer
'Coz You gave me
You gave me a mountain this time
