Gonna Build A Mountain


Gonna build a mountain, from a little hill.
Gonna build a mountain, least I hope I will.
Gonna build a mountain, gonna build it high,
I don't know how I'm gonna do it,
only I know I'm gonna try.

Gonna build a dream, from a little hope.
Gonna push that day dream up the mountain slope.
Gonna build a day dream, gonna see it through,
Gonna build a mountain and a day dream,
gonna make 'em both come true.

Gonna build a heaven from a little hell.
Gonna build a heaven, and I know darn well
If I build a mountain with a lot of care,
And take my day dream up the mountain,
heaven will be waiting there.

When I've build that heaven, as I will some day,
And the Lord sends Gabriel to take me away,
Wanna fine young son who will take my place,
I'll leave a son in my heaven on Earth,
with the Lord's grace.

Gonna build a heaven, from a little hell,
Gonna build a heaven, and I know darn well,
With a fine young son who will take my place,
There'll be a son in my heaven on earth
with the Lord's grace.

Gonna build a mountain, from a little hill.
Gonna build a mountain, least I hope I will.
Gonna build a mountain, gonna build it high,
I don't know how I'm gonna do it,
only I know I'm gonna try.
