  • Every day ain't my day
    Easy street don't run my way
    Cross my heart and hope to spit
    The gettin's good, tell me what do I get

    Fool me once, fooled you twice
    Buy myself a paradise
    Ring my bell, time will tell
    Someday soon I'm gonna give em hell, yeah

    But that mountain is too high for me to climb
    The river is too deep and it's too wide, wide
    Out of sight, out of mind, I get this way from time to time
    But right now it's too high for me to climb,
    Oh it's a little too high

    Fill my cup, wish me luck
    Turn my frown right side up
    Pills and bills, kiss of death
    Pawn shop slip is all I've got left, yeah

    But that mountain is too high for me to climb
    The river is too deep and it's too wide, wide
    You get yours, I'll get mine
    I ain't in no hurry, got plenty of time
    Right now it's too high for me to climb, oh it's a little too high

    That mountain is too high for me to climb
    The river is too deep and it's too wide, wide
    Out of sight, out of mind, I get this way from time to time
    But right now it's too high for me to climb
    Looks like it's too high for me to climb
    Right now it's too high for me to climb
    Oh it's a little too high Writer/s: Brit Turner, Charlie Starr, Paul Jackson, Richard Turner
