I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down

Words & Music:

H. Banks & A. Jones


C              Am             F              G

I'm the living result.  I'm a man who's been hurt a little too much.

C        E7         Am

F                                        C      E7  Am

And I've tasted the bitterness of my own tears.


Sadness is all my lonely heart can feel.



C       F            C       F

I can't stand up for falling down.

C       F            C        F

I can't stand up for falling down.


Simple though love is, still it confused me.  Why?

I'm not loved the way I should be.

Now, I've lived with heartaches and I've roomed with fear.

I've dealt with despair and I've wrestled with tears.






Fm                   C               Bb  C  F

The vow that we made you broke it in two.

Fm             G

But, that don't stop me from loving you.
