(Marty Robbins)

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.

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 got tired of the hardships
Tired of the grief and the strife
So 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 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...
This song is from the album "Sweetheart of the Year [Columbia]" and "Make the World Go Away [Harmony]".
