THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

I GOT MY EYE ON HEAVEN
I’LL BE GOIN’ SOME DAY
BUT EVERY TIME I TURN AROUND
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

I’M TRYIN’ TO FIND MY HEAVEN
BUT MUCH TO MY DISMAY
EV’RY TIME I’M HOMEWARD BOUND
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

I CAN’T GO UNDER
CAN’T GO AROUND
GOT TO CLIMB UP OVER
TO THE HOLY GROUND
AN’ I CAN’T TURN BACK
CAN’T GO ASTRAY
AND THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

IT’S THE AGE OLD STORY
OF HOW WE OVERCOME
TALKIN’ ‘BOUT THE QUEST
FOR FAME AND GLORY
AN’ HOW I GOTTA GET ME SOME

YOU SEE I LOVE THE THINGS
OF THIS EXISTENCE
FAR TOO MUCH
I’VE NO RESISTENCE
AN’ THE ROAD IT STRETCHES
SUCH A DISTANCE
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY
OH!

YES IT’S!
THE AGE OLD STORY
OF HOW WE OVERCOME
TALKIN’ ‘BOUT THE QUEST
FOR FAME AND GLORY
I THOUGHT I HADDA GET ME SOME

YOU SEE I LOVE THIS WORLD
I LOVE THE ACTION
MUCH TOO MUCH
TO MY DISTRACTION
THAT’S RIGHT!
WE TALKIN’ ‘BOUT SATISFACTION
AN’ THE THIRST WON’T GO AWAY

I GOT MY EYE ON HEAVEN
I’LL BE GOIN’ SOME DAY
BUT EVERY TIME I TURN AROUND
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

WELL I CAN’T SEE LEAVIN’ THE LIFE I’VE LED
AN’ I CAN’T SEE NOTHIN’ OF THE ROAD AHEAD
AN’ I KNOW THERE’S A-COMIN’
THE JUDGEMENT DAY
BUT THE THIRST WON’T GO AWAY

SO PARDON ALL MY PALPITATION
I CAN’T STAND SUCH ANTICIPATION
GOT A HUNDRED POUNDS OF FRUSTERATION
THERE’S A MOUNTAIN IN MY WAY

NOW BY AND BY
WHEN THE MORNING COMES
WHEN THE SAINTS OF GOD ARE GATHERED HOME WE’LL TELL THE
STORY
OF HOW WE’VE OVERCOME
FOR WE’LL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER BY AND BY
