    "You Gave Me A Mountain" Lyrics

    Jack Greene

    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 a prisoner
    For something I've never done
    It's been one hill after another
    And I've climbed them all one by one

    But this time, Lord, you gave me a mountain
    A mountain I may never climb

    And it isn't a hill any longer
    You gave me a mountain this time

    My woman grew tired of the hardships
    Tired of the grief and the strife
    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
    She took my small baby boy

    And this time Lord
