You Gave Me a Mountain

(Robbins)

Informação:

Se bem que Marty Robbins tenha gravado esta canção em finais de 1968, foi a gravação de Frankie Laine no início de 1969 (ABC 11174) que foi lançada primeiro. Laine chegou ao 24º lugar da tabela Hot 100 da Billboard e foi número um na tabela Easy-Listening. A versão de Robbin foi mais tarde lançada no seu LP de 1969, It's a Sin (Columbia 9811). Entretanto, Johnny Bush (Stop 257) tive um sucesso country Nº 7 com You Gave Me a Mountain.


Elvis incorporou You Gave Me a Mountain nas suas atuações nos anos 70. A sua atuação de 9 de abril de 1972, em Hampton Roads, na Virginia pode ser vista no documentário Elvis on Tour. Elvis também cantou You Gave Me a Mountain em Elvis Aloha From Hawaii e Elvis in Concert.
 

Letra:

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 never done
It's been one hill after another, I've climbed them all one by one

But this time, Lord 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 heartaches, tired of the grief and the strife
So tired of working for nothing, just 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

Oh and this time, Lord 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

You gave me a mountain this time
