Lonestar - Mountains Lyrics




Lucinda Jones, working at 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
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 ole hiils'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 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
Walking's easy when the road is flat
Them danged ole hiils'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' hiils'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
Yeah, oh

    Get back up and fight boys and girls... it's when you're picking yourself up that you find out who you really are, and inspire everyone around you - but even if there's no one there to see you push onwards, know that you make the human race better by not giving up on your dreams (:

  16. Arthur Palmer

  17. Ashlee Johnson

    How can anyone dislike this song? It's relatable to EVERYONE. All of us have mountains we have to climb in life. We all have struggles that we have to overcome. Do they hate it because it's the truth? Or maybe they are just trolls? Who knows

  18. Richard Music

  21. Jeffrey Collins

    the graduate reminds me of Harry Potter

  22. Dakota Carlton

    The 81 people that don't like this song do not appreciate the hard working people in this country! I put my life on the line for the citizens of my county!

    Ashlee Johnson

    Dakota Carlton God bless you and keep doing what you do. :)

    Rita Schneider

    Whatever it is that you do, Dakota Carlton, thank you so much!!!

    Suzanne MenuetTGB

    Thank you for your service

    Edwin Pierrot

    Amen brother thank you for all you do for your Country, even though I'm Canadian I have great respect for the men and women who serve for Canada and The USA, thank you for having pride and honor for your Country, and dont let what others think keep you from doing what you feel is right everyday, honor and respect forever for serving

  23. Reyna Kenny

    we are doing this song for graduation

  24. Andrew Hoelsken

    I don't know how you can't not love this song. It's great, and so are these guys.

  25. Steven Mathews

    Describes the last 10 or so years of my life perfectly.   I've certainly have had my fair share of struggles and am going through a pretty tough one right now but thanks to Jesus and my mom being there for me I've made it through every one.   Seek Jesus and God bless:)

  26. Shariff C 46

    wow mountain song is fantastic super

  27. GameSmartShows 2K

    Even if you lose both legs, your still alive to everybody around you. Don't give up on anything. Get backup and climb high to the good Lord above him and believe in yourself in anything that is possible.

    Armando Maza

    Lonestar plays with Heart

  28. San Geet

    Running a marathon with one leg lost in a was is likened to waiting "every creed and color" - I'm amazed (pun intended) by the implied sick prejudice that lingers on in some.
    I do like the rest of the song though...

    San Geet

    +kikamen you first.
    Getting carried away is exciting, trying to make sense of it boring - only for the demented.

    Matthew633

    +San Geet
    You can be offended by the song if you want, but think of this:
    A waitress serves all types of people, jerks, good, bad, scumbags, religions, cultures.

    A waitress can be treated badly enough to being sexually harassed, yet has to walk and treat her customers right or she doesn't get paid. (waitress jobs rely heavily on tips)

    Think on this, a woman is treated by every culture differently. Many cultures are less than respectful to women because of their religious and traditional doctrine.

    It's a tough job, you have to keep smiling even when the people treat you as trash, if you are flirted to, you have to flirt back and act like nothing hurts you.

    Playing the race card is so....cliche.
    If any country is racist, it is the countries unlike the United States that treats the outsiders as outsiders.

    Here, any creed has the same rights as any original Englishman does. Besides, is it not best to tell the racists off? tell them their actions are not acceptable?

    There's less to what you read between the lines...most people just want to be treated with respect.

    San Geet

    That was some lecture there.
    I get what the song is meant to depict. My comment was about the choice of words that is made to convey that it is hard work. I'm not playing any cards here. Try to think rationally before writing off. ALL customer service jobs have the hardships you list. BUT, a customer's creed nor color adds any more hardship to serve them.
    Lighten up, and re-read my comment, if that helps - I'm NOT reading between lines, I mentioned 2 specific words that read so obviously wrong.
    What does customer's "creed and color" got to do with "respectfulness"? No, don't answer me - you deliberately miss the point OR you're just so biased and defend it too, albeit with a lack of reasoning..

    Phoebe Esquivel

    +San Geet They might even be talking about white folks! Since they're some of the rudest people I've ever met.

    Eric Thompson

    Phoebe Esquivel Nah, there can never be a race ruder than blacks or tip any less than the black folk.

  29. Pamela Garland

    Hard Working Mama ....God Bless Her Courageous Lady ...Thanks Lone Star .....

  30. Mariusz Jałtuszewski

    Fajna nutka, nice song :) greetings from Poland :)

  31. Melody Jones

    Love love love this song!

  32. Susan Aldridge

    Such a great song . Love lonestar never heard this one before

  33. Esther Coblentz

    This song came out just as I was starting a very tough fight in my life. It became my anthem. It inspired me to keep fighting every time I wanted to give up. It was my mountain to overcome. And I did. 

    Jon Adams

    Lone star mountains song music video.

  40. Sarah Assakkaf

  41. Sandra Hubbard Briggs DBA Roxanne & Priddy's Jewels

    I think I've found a new singer to follow! I really like every song Lonestar does!! He has an excellent voice! Not hard on the eyes either !!!

  42. unclecode3

    everytime i hear this song i think of my school years they were hard and suffered from depression and even got to the point where i wanted to kill myself but the day i graduated from high school i felt like i had beat the tallest mountain     

    Jeff Leonard

    Sad. Don't think your life is over because of depression. Mountains are obstacles that can help us. Don't let yourself down.

  43. Gary Liseo Jr

    6 surgeries later, I'm still here and I haven't had to climb since Valentine's Day 2013, and that was surgery related. I haven't had a usual seizure since September 2012.

  44. Angelique Ramsay

    My mountains is severe migraines I get them every day every 30 min its put me in the hospital for a week , cat scans,ivs,oxgen more needles. they still don't know whats up I had a follow up appoment and my dr told me t suck it up. I know something isn't right but after hearing that I just don't want to go back to the hospital.

  45. chrissup19

    Because life is about living, not dying, we shouldn't focus on death, heaven is all around us, it just takes the right set of eyes to see it. All religions are similar because they come from the same place, one God, one truth, one source, it is just through time, differences in people (and other reasons) that seperated them. Jesus died for us, and his blood was shed because of our sins, yes, but it isn't that simple, we don't get a free ride because he died, it takes faith, wisdom, and love.

  46. Miharu Kurokawa

    why would we need to accomplish anything in life if there is nothing to look forward to afterwards? I am a Christian and I am have recently been trying to understand other religions. They all seem to be mostly the same but as far as I've noticed Christianity is the only one where getting into Heaven is free of charge because the price has already been paid by the blood of Jesus. We all need something to believe in it helps us through life to know that fate and hope and someone bigger is there.

  47. Sedat c

    I dont even really listen to country but this one got me through my acl reconstruction. lol

  48. Kyle Theobald

    That is great that you have been seizure free, since February, I was seizure free for four years, but two weeks after my 25 th birthday,in 2012, I had a very bad seizure. It landed me in the hospital for a week, I remember telling one doctor telling me, that I was pretty sick but not to give up, and I looked him and told him, if I can survive high school having crohn's I was eight, and going to school to be an LNA, I'm not giving up any time soon. I never lay down and say die.

  49. Gary Liseo Jr

    I'm almost at the summit. One more surgery and I'll have an artificial bone piece in and I've been seizure free since February or this year (2013)

  50. joseph maldonado

    My girlfriend went into the navy on April 10 and when she left I've been doing stuff to better my life everyday that I can. Her not by my side is the biggest mountain that I've had to climb. But I climbed to the top of mission peek when this song came on right when I was just about to get to the top and when I did I could swear I could see her face in the clouds. Hollie sweet heart I love you to the end of time you are my cable when I climb any mountain. My prayers are with you everyday. :)

  51. Jordan knight

  60. Meghan Callender

    I'm climbing that same mountain myself. It's definitely not an easy one but I'm hoping that one day I'll be able to drive. For now though it's just friends, family and public transportation.

  61. riley Linton

  62. veteranscomefirst

    love how they related this song to the military.

  63. Dallas Prewitt

    I was always trying to lose weight to be in better shape. I couldn't find the motivation to do so, but this song has inspired me. I've lost 25Ibs in two months, and gained the body I wanted. I just signed up for the marines, and I'm being shipped off after new years. This song was my blessing.(: Thanl you.(:

  64. Mikayla Rae

    gosh I can listen to this song forever and it moves me, but when I watch he video it always makes me wanna cry I tear up no matter how much I try haha its so inspiring I love the motivation and hope it bring people, I'm not much of a believer but I believe in people needing somthing to inspire them and give them hope so i very much love the message this song give about the Lord giving you mountains to concur its really amazing :)

  65. amanda hughes

    the man with the artifical leg is so inspiring. he went through so much pain, yet he's still climbing and finishind what he truly believed in no matter what obsticale he faced.

  66. Anna Sisk

    Gary the Lord has placed epilepsy as a mountain in my path as well. I had my first major seizure when I was 12, I am now 26 with 2 kids I wasn't supposed to have and my seizures have been controlled while I take virtual courses for my degree. Keep it up and good luck at Yale, trust in the Lord and he will guide you through anything!!!

    if you dont have ups and downs you'd be dead....in short we all need our own mountains

  71. cbarsonfire

    I work with vets with the same attitude of the guy in the video. It amazes me what they can do. The truth is that even though I help them, they are helping me at the same time with their will to live on.

    Some days the pressure is high and a tear comes to my eye, but I have to devote the rest of my life to this cause, as it is the least one can do.

    Thanks to all the men and women in uniform and each and every veteran.

    Gunner

  72. Kmsnead95

    I love this song, It is like my theme song right now. Never give up and always go for your dreams.

  74. Donnie Nelson

    My mountain is MDD (Muscular Dystrophy Duschenne) - I will never stop going on. So far it has lead to good things every time I break down but keep going. Got an amazingly perfect gf, extremely smart (33/36 on ACT), and have the best friends a man could ever ask for. Life is so worth the rough patches =)

    That's in Boulder! I live There!

  88. buddhastaxi666

    good lord made the mountains but he did not make a society where you are undereducated, where you are paid so little you must work 2 or 3 jobs to get by. The Lord did not make it so hard for you to have a decent life, have good health, eat real food and not die in political wars like Vietnam and Iraq. You are being shafted up to hilt and they are telling you its love making.

  89. buddhastaxi666

    this is propaganda you wonder why the working classes in the US work for fuck all and you let your bosses cause the WFC
    MOTIVATION is motivation ...oppression is tyranny...reward is not in heaven with Jesus its h ere and its now!!!!
    if you dont get it then you deserve to be shafted generation after generation

  90. buddhastaxi666

    so the message is get ripped off most of your life otherwise you would never have the motivation to achieve
    you know a fair wage is not welfare dependency
    this is just more propaganda to rationalise financial greed

  91. buddhastaxi666

    shucks should have voted for Palin
    maybe i would have been paid a living wage in the greatest country in the world

  92. CakesWarden

    I work out too. What are your routines usually like?

  93. cody miller

    watch me

  94. rjb1112004

    My son was brought into my life when I was 15 yrs old and it has been a climb since I had him. Montana = Mountain in Spanish so I like to look at this song as "The Good Lord gave us Montana to teach us how to climb" because he has sure done that for me. I am so thankful to have him and have learned so much with him in my life!!!!!
