Race Is On Lyrics by Del Reeves
Race Is On by Del Reeves
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful that I may never shake
And you might say that I was takin' it hard since she wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow when I may break right down and bawl
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the backstretch
Heartaches are goin' to the inside my tears are holding back a tryin' not to fall
My heart's out of the runnin' true love scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches and the winner loses all
[ guitar ]
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 findin' that you're gone from me
The ache and pain in my heart for today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her and I came out in second place
Now the race is on...
