Good Sunday Morning…

Time for Song Lyric Sunday…Today’s prompts are from Mr. Jim.  They are, “Mountain/Hill.”  Really didn’t have any trouble finding a song for this prompt.  Funny I always choose the first one that pops into my mind.  Today me and the husband disargreed.  He wanted, “The Mountain of Love” by Johnny Rivers.  I didn’t connect with that one so I’m going with this …

Diana Ross & The Supremes recorded a version of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” which was more faithful to the Terrell-Gaye original version as a duet with The Temptations. That song was an album cut from a joint LP released by Motown Records in 1968 on the two superstar groups, titled Diana Ross & the Supremes Join The Temptations.

Diana Ross – Ain’t No Mountain High Enough Lyrics

(Nickolas ashford/valerie simpson)

If you need me, call me. No matter where you are, no matter how far. Just call my name. I’ll be there in a hurry. On that you can depend and never worry.
You see, my love is aliv. It’s like a seed, that only needs the thought of you to grow. So if you feel the need for company, please, my darling, let it be me. I may not be able to express the depth of the love I feel for you, but a writer put it very nicely when he was away from the one he loved. He sat down and wrote these words:

No wind, (no wind) no rain, (no rain)
Nor winter’s cold
Can stop me, babe (oh, babe) baby (baby)
If you’re my goal

No wind, no rain,
Can stop me, babe
If you wanna go

I know, I know you must follow the sun
Wherever it leads
But remember
If you should fall short of your desires
Remember life holds for you one guarantee
You’ll always have me.

And if you should miss my lovin’
One of these old days
If you should ever miss the arms
That used to hold you so close, or the lips
That used to touch yours so tenderly
Just remember what I told you
The day I set you free.

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough (say it again)
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from you.

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough (say it again)
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from you.

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Nothing can keep me
To keep me from you.

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no valley low enough (one more time)
Ain’t no river wide enough (say it again)
To keep me from you.

Ain’t no mountain high enough
Nothing can keep me
To keep me from you.

Songwriters: NICKOLAS ASHFORD, VALERIE SIMPSON
