​There's A Limit

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album Trouble & Me (1965) and on the album I Pawned My Past Today (1969).

In my troubled sleep my hands reach out to touch you
But you're no longer there to greet my hungry hands
Then I wake up and I cry out in the darkness
And wonder how much more of this my heart can stand

A man can stand so much hurtin'
I've stood a lot that's for certain
But without your love I'm bound to lose my mind
I've cried so much I hurt all over
The breakin' forty's gettin' closer
There's a limit and I've almost reached mine

Once I had my pride and called myself a strong man
But my strength and pride walked out the door with you
Now this awful aching hurt keeps tearing at me
It's killing me to think of you with someone new

A man can stand so much hurtin'
I've stood a lot that's for certain
But without your love I'm bound to lose my mind
I've cried so much I hurt all over
The breakin' forty's gettin' closer
There's a limit and I've almost reached mine
There's a limit and I've almost reached mine
