VERSE 1
********
      G
Well, somebody had to come second 

I think it's the best that I've done 
     C                              G
As I entered the straight, the tape beckoned 
       A7                       D
But he just chested past me and won 
           C                 G
Still, I'm only 18, I'll get faster 
  C                           D
I started this sport just for fun 
            C                           G
But there's lots more to learn, lots to master 
    D                           G
You don't just go out there and run 
        C                           G
There's lots more to learn, lots to master 
    D                           G
You don't just go out there and run

VERSE 2
********
D7    G
Well, somebody had to come third love 

I gave it my lot, all the way 
  C                           G
I flew round that bend like a bird, love 
         A7                 D
But then, it just wasn't my day 
           C           G
Still, I'm 23, getting stronger 
        C                     D
And I'm certain I'm giving me all 
     C                            G
It's just that the distance seems longer 
        D                       G
And the pleasure's beginning to pall 
     C                            G
It's just that the distance seems longer 
        D                       G
And the pleasure's beginning to pall

VERSE 3
********
D7    G
Well, somebody had to come fourth, dear
  C                       G
I tried just as hard as I could 

But the wind at this track's from the north dear 
         A7                D
And that never does me any good 
          C                    G
Still, at 30, you’ve got to be sure, love 
      C                          D
These youngsters are lacking the skill
         C                      G
And I've grown to be fast and mature, love
     D                     G
I'll win, I believe that I will 
         C                      G
And I've grown to be fast and mature, love
     D                     G
I'll win, I believe that I will

VERSE 4
********
D7    G
Well, somebody had to fill fifth place 

Me legs were like lead at the end 
  C                        G
I know, it's a terrible disgrace
    A7                         D
But that's it, I'm finished my friend 
   C         G
At 35 nobody fears you
  C                   D
Nobody cheers at your name 
   C                         G
No need for that blanket, no tears now 
      D                   G
You remember that early acclaim 
   C                         G
No need for that blanket, no tears now 
      D                   G
You remember that early acclaim

VERSE 5
********
D7    G
Well, somebody had to come last now 

Or else how could we have a race? 
      C                       G
I let all the others go past, how 
     A7                     D
They elbowed and pushed and lost face 
       C               G
Me? I enjoyed the fine weather 
    C                         D
And kept myself clear of their maul 
   C                    G
At 40, just finishing’s clever
        D                             G
And the pleasure's in running, that's all
   C                    G
At 40, just finishing’s clever
        D                             G
And the pleasure's in running, that's all

VERSE 6
********
D7    G
Well, I've never been first 'cross the line, love
 
I've not made a penny o’ brass 
      C                        G
But I reckon it all worked out fine, love
  A7                         D
I just never reached the top class 
      C                         G
Now I see 'em all jiggered with joggin' 
      C                    D
Their faces distorted with pain 
     C                         G
Such grief, it makes me need a noggin 
         D                      G
Let's be first down the tavern again 
     C                         G
Such grief, it makes me need a noggin 
         D                           G
Let's be first down the King's Head again
