Elvis Presley - You Gave Me A Mountain Chords

[intro]
C  Em  Am  Fadd9  Fmaj7  Fm  G

[verse 1]
C                       Am
Born in the heat of the desert
Dm7                        G7sus4 G
 My mother died givin' me life
C                          Am
 Deprived of the love of a father,
Dm7                        G7sus4 G
 Blamed for the loss of his wife
    C                          Am
You know, Lord, I've been in a prison,
    F6                     G7sus4
For something that I never done
C                          Em
 It's been one hill after another,
F                               G7sus4
 But I've climbed them all one by one

[chorus]
        C
Oh, but this time, Lord, You
F           C
gave me a mountain
  C          F            C    Bb F   C
a mountain I-I may never climb
   C          F         C
It isn't on a hill any longer
    C         F              C   Bb F
You gave me a mountain this time

[verse 2]
C                          Am
 My woman got tired of the heartaches
Dm7                           G7sus4 G
 Tired of the grief and the strife
   C                    Am
So tired of workin' for nothin'
     Dm7                G7sus4 G
Just tired of bein' my wife
C                       Am
 She took my one ray of sunshine,
Dm7                        G7sus4 G
 She took my pride and my joy
C                       Em
 She took my reason for living
F                        G7sus4 G
 She took my small baby boy

[chorus]
    C
Oh, this time, Lord, You
F           C
gave me a mountain
  C          F             C    Bb F   C
a mountain I-I may never climb
   C          F          C
It isn't on a hill any longer
    C         F              C
You gave me a mountain this time

[coda]
    C         F
You gave me a mountain ... this time
C        C/E F         Ab Bb   C
 (Gave me a  mountain     this time)
Bb  F   C
Oh, oh, oh
