Dan Fogelberg

(Unhurried waltz temp)
(Capo to taste.  I usually capo one fret, but I am not sure
whether this is the original key or not.)

E            C#m          A            B7
E            C#m          A            B7

E            C#m          A            B7
Born in the valley, and raised in the trees
E             C#m        A       B7
Of Western Kentucky, on wobbly knees
     E       C#m          A         Am
With Mama beside you, to help you along,
         E        C#m         F#m       B7
You'll soon be a-growing up strong.

All the long lazy mornings, in pastures of green,
The sun on your withers, the wind in your mane
Could never prepare you for what lies ahead:
The run for the roses so red.  And it's

 A           B7       G#m
Run for the roses as fast as you can
 A              B7            G#m
Your fate is delivered.  Your moment's at hand.
           A          B7             G#m         A
It's the chance of a lifetime, in a lifetime of chance,
         F#m                          B7
And it's high time you joined in the dance.
      D                           A
It's high time you joined in the dance.

E            C#m          A            B7
>From sire to sire, it's born in the blood.
     E         C#m           A            B7
The fire of a mare and the strength of a stud.
       E                 C#m                A            Am
It's breeding, and it's training, and it's something unknown,
       E            C#m          A   B7
That drives you and carries you home.    So it's

I like this, I took it up to a D and used Fm instead of the Bm, sounds more like the song I remember

The C#m in the verse should be Abm. In the chorus, the "lifetime of chance" line should, I think, end with C#m instead of A.

Otherwise, great tab.
