I’ve Endured

print

Born in the mountains fifty years ago
I’ve trod the hills and valleys through the rain and snow
I’ve seen the lightning flashing I’ve heard the thunder roll
I’ve Endured I’ve Endured how long can one endure

Barefoot in the summer on into the fail
Too many mouths to feed they couldn’t clothe us all
Sent to church on Sunday to learn the golden rule
I’ve Endured I’ve Endured how long can one endured

I’ve worked for the rich I’ve lived with the poor
I’ve see many a heartache there’ll be many a more
Lived loved and sorrowed been to success’s door
I’ve Endured I’ve Endured how long can one endured
