Race Is On

This song is by Loretta Lynn and appears on the album Blue Kentucky Girl (1965).

Well, 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.

Now you might say that I was takin' it hard
That he 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 going to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
LMy 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.

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

'Cause there's ache and pain in my heart
For today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win him
And I came out in second place.

Now the race is on
And here comes pride
Up the backstretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
LMy 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...
