Run for the Roses  Dan Fogelberg


Dan Fogelberg
(Unhurried waltz temp)
(Capo to taste. I usually capo one fret, but I am not sure
whether this is the original key or not.)
[E] [C#m] [A] [B7] 
[E] [C#m] [A] [B7] 
[E]Born in the v[C#m]alley, and ra[A]ised in the t[B7]rees
[E]Of Western Ken[C#m]tucky, on w[A]obbly kn[B7]ees
With [E]Mama bes[C#m]ide you, to h[A]elp you al[Am]ong,
You'll so[E]on be a-g[C#m]rowing up st[F#m]rong.[B7]
All the long lazy mornings, in pastures of green,
The sun on your withers, the wind in your mane
Could never prepare you for what lies ahead:
The run for the roses so red. And it's
R[A]un for the r[B7]oses as f[Abm]ast as you can
Y[A]our fate is del[B7]ivered. Your [Abm]moment's at hand.
It's the ch[A]ance of a l[B7]ifetime, in a l[Abm]ifetime of c[A]hance,
And it's [F#m]high time you joined in the d[B7]ance.
It's h[D]igh time you joined in the d[A]ance.
<Repeat Intro>
[E] [C#m] [A] [B7] 
The f[E]ire of a m[C#m]are and the st[A]rength of a s[B7]tud.
It's br[E]eeding, and it's t[C#m]raining, and it's s[A]omething unkn[Am]own,
That dr[E]ives you and [C#m]carries you h[A]ome.[B7] So it's <repeat chorus>
<take it out acoustically>
