Heartbreak Mountain    (1971)

I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Yeah, I'm going up on Heartbreak Hill
I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Because I've lost my will to live

It was 6 o'clock yesterday morning
When my sweet baby packed up to leave
It was 6 o'clock yesterday morning
And I ain't done nothing but grieve

Well, I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Yeah, I'm going up on Heartbreak Hill
I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Because I've lost my will to live

Well, I cried and I begged and I pleaded
For my sweet baby not to go
Like a leaf that's caught in a whirlwind
Where she's gone now I'll never know

Well, I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Yeah, I'm going up on Heartbreak Hill
I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Because I've lost my will to live

Now why does a man let a woman
Turn him into a hollow shell
And walk off and leave him behind her
Like a ship at sea with no sail

Well, I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Yeah, I'm going up on Heartbreak Hill
Hey, I'm going up on Heartbreak Mountain
Because I've lost my will to live
