Ain't No Mountain High Enough
Diana Ross Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Listen baby, ain't no mountain high
Ain't no valley low, ain't no river wide enough, baby
If you need me call me, no matter where you are
No matter how far
Don't worry, baby
Just call my name, I'll be there in a hurry
You don't need to worry
'Cause 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 I set you free
I told you you could always count on me, darlin' (yeah, baby)
From that day on, I made a vow
I'll be there when you want me
Some way, some how

'Cause 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

(Oh no, darlin') No wind, no rain
Or winter's cold can stop me, baby
(Oh no) 'Cause you are my goal
If you're ever in trouble
I'll be there on the double
Just send for me, oh baby

My love is alive
Way down in my heart
Although we are miles apart
If you ever need a helping hand
I'll be there on the double
Just as fast as I can

Don't you know that 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

Don't you know that there
Ain't no mountain high enough




Ain't no valley low enough
Ain't no river wide enough
