I'm Always On A Mountain When I Fall Lyrics

by Merle Haggard

Most of my life, I've almost been a winner
I've come so close but never really won
Just when I thought I finally made it
I found myself back where I started from

I hate to say I'm giving up but I believe
Losin's just become a way of life for me
Losin' wouldn't be so bad at all
But I'm always on a mountain when I fall

Then you came along and had me, had me believin'
For once in my life my luck finally changed
And now you say you're gonna leave me
Seems everything I do winds up the same

I hate to say I'm giving up but I believe
Losin's just become a way of life for me
Losin' wouldn't be so bad at all
But I'm always on a mountain when I fall

Losin' wouldn't be so bad at all
But I'm always on a mountain when I fall
