You Gave Me A Mountain

Song Author Marty Robbins Performer: Marty Robbins Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Born in the heat of the [Am]desert
My [Dm]mother died giving me [G7]life   
[C]Deprived of the love a [Am]Father
[Dm]Blamed for the loss of his [G7]wife   

[C]You know Lord I've been in a [Am]prison
For [F]something that I've never [G7]done   
It's [C]been one hill [Am]after an[Em]other
But [F]I've climbed them [Dm]all one by [G7]one   

But [C]this time you [F]gave me a [C]mountain
A mountain [F]I may never [C]climb
It isn't a [F]hill any [C]longer
You gave me a [F]mountain this [C]time

My Woman got tired of the [Am]hardships
[Dm]Tired of the grief and the [G7]strife
[C]Tired of working for [Am]nothing
[Dm]Tired of being my [G7]wife   

[C]She took my one ray of [Am]sunshine
[F]She took my pride and my [G7]joy   
[C]She took my [Am]reason for [Em]living
[F]She took my small baby [G7]boy   

[C]So this time you [F]gave me a [C]mountain
A mountain [F]I may never [C]climb
And it isn't a [F]hill any [C]longer
You gave me a [F]mountain this [C]time

Born in the heat of the desert
My mother died giving me life
Deprived of the love 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

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

So this time 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
