The Race Is On

George Jones

  I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
Like my  heart's sprung a big  break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
  That I may never shake
You might  say that I was taking it hard
Oh, 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?

  Well, the race is  on and here comes Pride up the backstretch
  Heartaches are going to the in- side
My Tears are holding back
They're tryin'  not to fall
  My Heart's out of the running
True Love's  scratched for another's  sake
The race is on and it looks like Heartaches
And the  winner loses  all.

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 thinkin' that you're gone from me
There's ache and pain in my heart
For today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
I came out in second place.
