Mountains

By Lonestar

Lucinda Jones workin' at the IHOP:
Ten years worth of bacon, eggs and tears
She's waited on every creed and color,
While waiting on this day to get here
Graveyard shifts to big tips,
Making every quarter count,
Was worth it all to see her son,
In that cap and gown.

There are times in life when you gotta crawl,
Lose your grip, trip and fall.
When you can't lean on no one else,
That's when you find yourself
I've been around and I've noticed that,
Walking's easy when the road is flat
Them danged ol' hills'll get you every time.
Yeah, the good Lord gave us mountains,
So we could learn how to climb.

Bobby, Bobby Dunn came back from the war,
Lost his leg but they couldn't take his will.
Hell bent to run in that local marathon,
He trained through the endless pain an' pills.
It hurt so bad that sometimes,
He just had to cry,
He didn't stop until he crossed,
That finish line.

There are times in life when you gotta crawl,
Lose your grip, trip an' fall
When you can't lean on no-one else,
That's when you find yourself.
I've been around and I've noticed that,
Walking's easy when the road is flat.
Them danged ol' hills'll get you every time.
Yeah, the good Lord gave us mountains,
So we could learn how to climb.

This world ain't fair,
It can knock you on your butt.
You can just lie there,
Or you can get back up.
You gotta get back up.

There are times in life when you gotta crawl,
Lose your grip, trip and fall.
When you can't lean on no-one else,
That's when you find yourself.
I've been around and I've noticed that,
Walking's easy when the road is flat.
Them danged ol' hills'll get you every time.
Yeah, the good Lord gave us mountains,
(The good Lord gave us mountains)
So we could learn how to climb.
