      About "Jacob's Ladder"

      Lyrics for Mark Wills - "Jacob's Ladder"

      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 waitin' 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 watin' at the top of Jacob's ladder

      Oh, an angel was waitin' at the top of Jacob's ladder
