Up To The Mountain

This song was a tribute written about Martin Luther King Jr. by Patty Griffin.  Crystal Bowersox sang her version of this song this week on American Idol.  Enjoy!

I went up to the mountain
Because you asked me to
Up over the clouds
To where the sky was blue

I could see all around me
Everywhere
I could see all around me
Everywhere

Sometimes I feel like
I never been nothing but tired
And I’ll be working
‘Til the day I expire

Sometimes I lay down
No more can I do
But then I go on again
Because you asked me to

Some days I look down
Afraid I will fall
And though the sun shines
I see nothing at all

Then I hear your sweet voice
Come and then go
Come and then go
Telling me softly
You love me so

The peaceful valley
Just over the mountain
The peaceful valley
Few come to know

I may never get there
Ever in this lifetime
But sooner or later
It’s there I will go
Sooner or later
It’s there I will go

Rain

Ran across this artist today while researching a song from American Idol last night.  Her name is Patty Griffin.  I had not heard of her before – and it’s a shame because so far everything I’m pulling up from her – I am loving.  She wrote the song that Crystal Bowersox sang last night “Up on a mountain” which is a tribute to Martin Luther King and I will post it tomorrow.  The following  song about ‘rain’ seemed appropriate for many reasons today and I find Patty’s voice and guitar very haunting and beautiful.  Hope you enjoy it!

It’s hard to listen to a hard hard heart
Beating close to mine
Pounding up against the stone and steel
Walls that I won’t climb
Sometimes a hurt is so deep deep deep
You think that you’re gonna drown
Sometimes all I can do is weep weep weep
With all this rain falling down

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I’m holding on underneath this shroud
Rain

Its hard to know when to give up the fight
Two things you want will just never be right
Its never rained like it has to night before
Now I don’t wanna beg you baby
For something maybe you could never give
I’m not looking for the rest of your life
I just want another chance to live

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I’m holding on underneath this shroud
Rain

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I’m holding on underneath this shroud
Rain

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I’m still alive underneath this shroud
Rain Rain Rain
