​I've Endured

This song is by Tim O'Brien and appears on the album Traveler (2003).

Born in the mountains, many years ago
I climbed these hills and valleys through the rain and snow
I've seen the lightning flashin', heard the thunder roll

I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure

Barefoot in the summer, on into the fall
Too many mouths to feed, they could not clothe us all
Sent to church on Sunday to learn the golden rule

I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure

I've worked for the rich and I've lived with the poor
I've seen many a heartaches and I'll see many more
I've lived loved and sorrowed, been through success's door

I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure

Born in the mountains, many years ago
I climbed these hills and valleys through the rain and snow
I've seen the lightning flashin', heard the thunder roll

I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure
I've endured, I've endured, how long must one endure
