The Race is on (Don Rollins) [NC] I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside Like my [D] heart's sprung a big [A] break And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful [E] That I may never shake You might [A] say that I was taking it hard Oh, she [D] wrote me off with a [A] call But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow When I may [E] break right down and [A] bawl? [NC] Well, the race is [A] on and here comes Pride up the backstretch [D] Heartaches are going to the in-[A] side My Tears are holding back They're tryin' [E] not to fall [A] My Heart's out of the running True Love's [D] scratched for another's [A] sake The race is on and it looks like Heartaches And the [E] winner loses [A] all. One day I ventured in love, never once suspectin' What the final result would be How I lived in fear of waking up each morning And thinkin' that you're gone from me There's ache and pain in my heart For today was the one that I hated to face Somebody new came up to win her I came out in second place.
