mountain of sorrow lyrics – nanci griffith

(julie gold)

easy come, easy go
anything but easy…though
you were here, now you’re gone
that’s the only thing i know

and it’s just one more sorrow
to throw upon the heap
mountain of sorrow…steep

what you see, the new me
changing right before your eyes
like a leaf on a tree
letting go before she flies

and it’s just one more sorrow
to throw upon the heap
mountain of sorrow…steep

mountain of sorrow
how high the top
must i climb, must i climb
ever blue
mountain of sorrow
when i can i stop
and be fine
knowing i’m over you?

easy come, easy go
anything but easy…though
said goodbye, knowing i
would have rather said h*llo

and it’s just one more sorrow
to throw upon the heap
mountain of sorrow…steep
mountain of sorrow…steep
