THE RACE IS ON
WITH GEORGE JONES
WRITER DON ROLLINS
I feel tears welling up from down deep inside,
Like my heart's got a big break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful that, I may never shake.
You might think (that) I'm taking it hard since you broke me off with a call,
You might wager that I'll hide in sorrow, but I might lay right down and bawl.
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch,
Heartaches a goin' to the inside,
My tears are holding back, tryin' not to fall.
My heart's our of the running, true love scratched for another's sake,
Well the race is on and it looks like heartaches, and the winner loses all.
One day I ventured your love never once suspecting
What the final result would be.
Now I live in fear (of) waking up each morning,
(And) finding that you're gone from me.
There's an achin' pain in my heart for the name of the one that I hated to face,
Somebody else came out to win her, and I came out in second place.
Now the race is on
and here comes pride in the back stretch
Heartaches a goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back, (They're) tryin' not to fall
My hearts out of the runnin', true love scratched for another's sake
Well the race is on and it looks like heartaches,
and the winner loses all
Well now the race is on and it looks like heartaches,
And the winner loses all
