You Gave Me A Mountain  Marty Robbins

B[C]orn in the heat of the de[Am]sert,
My m[Dm7]other died givin' me l[G7]ife;
D[C]eprived of the love a F[Am]ather,
[Dm7]Blamed for the loss of his [G7]wife.
[C]You know, Lord, I've been in a p[Am]rison,
For so[F]mething that I've never d[G7]one;
It's b[C]een one hill after an[Em]other,
But I[F]'ve climbed them [Dm7]all one by o[G7]ne.

B[C]ut this time, Lord, You [F]gave me a M[C]ountain,
A Mountain [F]I may never cl[C]imb;
And it isn't a h[F]ill any lo[C]nger,
You gave me a Mo[F]untain this t[C]ime.

My Woman got tired of the hardships,
Tired of the grief and the strife;
So tired of workin' for nothin',
Tired of bein' my wife,
She took my one ray of sun-shine,
She took my pride and my joy;
She took my reason for living,
She took my small baby boy.


So 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.
