Mountains, by Lonestar

Lucinda Jones working 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, two bit tips,
Making every quarter count.
It’s 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
Walkin’s easy when the road is flat
Them danged ‘ole hills will get you every time.
Yeah, the good Lord gave us mountains
So we could learn how to climb

Private 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 and 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 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
Walkin’s easy when the road is flat
Them danged ‘ole hills will 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
Walkin’s easy when the road is flat
Them danged ‘ole hills will get you every time.
Yeah, the good Lord gave us mountains
So we could learn how to climb
