The Race Is On

George Jones

 NC
  I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
 DA
Like my  heart's sprung a big  break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
 E
  That I may never shake
 A
You might  say that I was taking it hard
 DA
Oh, she  wrote me off with a  call
But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow
 EA
When I may  break right down and  bawl?

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