Mark Wills - Jacob's Ladder Lyrics


Jacob was a dirt poor farm boy,
Raised at the fork in the road
In a clapboard house.
And Rachael was a land baron's daughter,
Born with a silver spoon in her mouth.
Her daddy said he wouldn't stand
For Rachael to waste her life
With a common man.
He tried hard to keep them apart,
But you can't draw lines
In a young girl's heart.

So late one night by the harvest moon,
Jacob climbed a ladder up to Rachael's room.
He knew his place, it was right beside her.
Step by step up to her world,
Head over heels for a brown-eyed girl.
And gettin' caught didn't seem to matter,
'Cause heaven was awaitin' at the top
Of Jacob's ladder.

It'll be five years September
Since her daddy found a ladder and a note
On her windowsill.
He swore he'd never forgive them,
But nothin' melts a heart
Like a grandchild will.
Now she climbs up on his knee,
Says, "Grandpa, tell a story,
The one about me."
He thinks back and his eyes shine,
Says, "Listen, child, once upon a time."

Late one night by the harvest moon
Your daddy climbed a ladder to your mama's room.
He knew his place, it was right beside her.
Step by step up to her world,
Head over heels for my little girl,
And here you are, that's all that matters.
'Cause heaven was awaitin' at the top
Of Jacob's ladder.

Whoa, an angel was waitin' at the top
Of Jacob's ladder.
