Because you asked me to...

Up to the Mountain -Patty Griffin

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

Sometimes I feel like
I've never been nothing but tired
I'll be walking
Till the day I expire
Sometimes I lay down
No more I can 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
And then I hear your sweet voice, oh
Oh, 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
It's there I will go

I heard this song performed on American Idol tonight and it made me cry! It touched me. Just thought I would share.


  1. So beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing that! Did you catch the season finale?

  2. I did..I was surprised. I thought for sure Crystal had it...you never know!
