  • 10 You Gave Me a Mountain
  • And I wake up in the mornin'
    With my hair down in my eyes and she says, "Hi"
    And I stumble to the breakfast table
    While the kids are goin' off to school, goodbye

    And she reaches out and takes my hand and squeezes it
    Says, "How you feelin', hon?"
    And I look across at smilin' lips
    That warm my heart and see my morning sun

    And if that's not lovin' me then all I've got to say

    God didn't make little green apples
    And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
    There's no such thing as Doctor Seuss
    Disneyland and Mother Goose is no nursery rhyme

    God didn't make little green apples
    And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
    And when myself is feelin' low
    I think about her face aglow to ease my mind

    Sometimes I call her up at home knowin' she's busy
    And ask her if she could get away and meet me
    And grab a bite to eat

    And she drops what she's doing
    And hurries down to meet me and I'm always late
    But she sits waitin' patiently and smiles when she first sees me
    Cause she's made that way

    And if that's not lovin' me then all I've got to say

    God didn't make little green apples
    And it don't snow in Minneapolis when the winter comes
    There's no such think as make believe
    The puppy dogs and autumn leaves and the BB guns

    God didn't make little green apples
    And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
    And when myself is feeling low
    I think about her face aglow and ease my mind

    She keeps on loving you
