The Race Is On - Don Rollins
============================
       G
I feel tears welling up from down deep inside,
     C                    G
Like my heart's got a big break
                                   Em           A7          D7
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful that I may never shake.
G                                       G7        C                   G
You might think that I'm taking it hard since you wrote me off with a call,
                                                     D7                 G
You might wager that I'll hide in sorrow and I might lay right down and bawl.

                G
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch,
C            G                                               A7            D7
Heartaches a goin' to the inside, my tears are holding back, tryin' not to fall.
G                                        C                       G
My heart's out of the running, true love scratched for another's sake,
            G                                        D7           G
The race is on and it looks like heartaches, and the winner loses all.

          G
One day I ventured in love never once suspecting
         C                  G
What the final result would be.
                                     Em
Now I live in fear of waking up each morning,
    A7                            D7
And finding that you're gone from me.
           G                               G7          C                   G
There's an aching pain in my heart for the name of the one that I hated to face,
                                             D7            G
Someone else came out to win her, and I came out in second place.

                G
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch,
C            G                                               A7            D7
Heartaches a goin' to the inside, my tears are holding back, tryin' not to fall.
G                                        C                       G
My heart's out of the running, true love scratched for another's sake,
            G                                        D7           G
The race is on and it looks like heartaches, and the winner loses all.
