lyrics to The Race Is On / George Jones

George Jones
Race Is On

[ with Travis Tritt ]
Lord 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 Lord 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 holding back they're tryin' not to fall
My heart's out of the running true love scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches and the winner loses all
[ guitar - dobro ]
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 her and I came out in second place
Now the race is on...
Yeah the race is on and it looks like heartaches and the winner loses all

(Written by Don Rollins)
I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep inside
Like my heart's sprung a big break
And the stab of loneliness, sharp and painful
That I may never shake.
You might say 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.
Chorus:
Well, the race is on
And here comes pride up the backstretch
Heartaches a-going to the inside
My tears are holding back
And 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.
--- Instrumental ---
One day I ventured in love, never once suspectin'
What the final results would be
How I lived in fear of waking up each mornin'
And finding that you're gone from me
There's aches and pain in my heart
For today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
I wound up in second place.
Chorus:
Well, the race is on and here comes pride
Up the backstretch
Heartaches a-going to the inside
My tears are holding back
And 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...

I feel tears wellin' up
Cold and deep inside
Like my heart's sprung a big break
And a stab of lonliness sharp and painful
That I may never shake
You might say that I was takin' it hard
Oh, she wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow
When I break right down and bawl
Well, the race is on
And here comes pride up the backstretch
Heartaches are goin' to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
My heart's out of the runnin'
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartache
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 wakin' up each mornin'
And thinkin' that you're gone from me
There's ache and pain in my heart
For today was the one I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
I came out in second place
