Ain’t No Mountain
If you need me, call me,
No matter where you are,
No matter how far,
Don’t worry, brother.

Just call out my name,
I’ll be there in a hurry,
You don’t have to worry,
’Cos baby there

Ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, babe.

Remember the day,
You set me free,
I told you you could
Always count on me.

From that day on,
I made a vow,
I’ll be there when you want me,
Somewhere, somehow.
’Cos baby there

Ain’t no mountain high enough,
Ain’t no valley low enough,
Ain’t no river wide enough
To keep me from getting to you, babe,
To keep me from getting to you!
