    "You Gave Me A Mountain" Lyrics

    Elvis Presley

    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 that I've never done
    It's been one hill after another
    But I've climbed them all one by one

    This time lord you gave me a mountain
    A mountain, I may never climb
    It isn't just a hill any longer

    You gave me a mountain this time

    My woman got tired of the heartaches
    Tired of the grief and the strife
    So tired of working nothing
    Just 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
    She took my small baby boy

    (repeat chorus)
