Chords and lyrics

difficulty: intermediate



                C                      Am

Born in the heat of the desert,

 Dm7                   G7

My mother died givin' me life;

C                     Am

Deprived of the love a Father,

Dm7                       G7

Blamed for the loss of his wife.

C                             Am

You know, Lord, I've been in a prison,

   F                         G7

For something that I've never done;

    C                   Em

It's been one hill after another,

   F                Dm7        G7

But I've climbed them all one by one.

CHORUS

   C                    F         C

But this time, Lord, You gave me a Mountain,

             F         C     G      

A Mountain I may never climb;

C             F        C

And it isn't a hill any longer,

             F             C    G         

You gave me a Mountain this time.

C                        Am

My Woman got tired of the hardships,

    Dm7                  G7

Tired of the grief and the strife;

C                     Am

So tired of workin' for nothin',

Dm7              G7

Tired of bein' my wife,

C                         Am

She took my one ray of sun-shine,

   F                    G7

She took my pride and my joy;

   C                  Em

She took my reason for living,

   F       Dm7       G7

She took my small baby boy.

CHORUS

  C                    F         C

So this time, Lord, you gave me a Mountain,

          F           C      G

A Mountain I may never climb;

C            F         C

And it isn't a hill any longer,

             F             C     G

You gave me a Mountain this time. o o  o
