Run for the Roses - Dan Fogelberg

Intro: E  G#m  A  B7  E  G#m  A  B7  E  G#m  A  Am  E  C#m  F#m  B7

E           G#m         A             B7
Born in the valley, and raised in the trees
   E           G#m       A      B7
Of Western Ken-tucky, on wobbly knees
     E       G#m          A          Am
With Mama be-side you, to help you a-long,
       E         C#m        F#m      B7
You'll soon be a-growing up strong.
        E         G#m          A           B7
All the long lazy mornings, in pastures of green,
    E           G#m          A            B7
The sun on your withers, the wind in your mane
      E         G#m          A           Am
Could never pre-pare you for what lies a-head:
    E           C#m      F#m     B7
The run for the roses so red.              And it's

Chorus:
A           B7       G#m
Run for the roses as fast as you can
     A          B7             G#m
Your fate is de-livered.  Your moment's at hand.
         A           B7             G#m         A
It's the chance of a lifetime, in a lifetime of chance,
         F#m                         B7
And it's high time you joined in the dance.
     D                           A
It's high time you joined in the dance.

     E       G#m        A           B7
From sire to sire, it's born in the blood.
    E         G#m          A             B7
The fire of a mare and the strength of a stud.
     E                  G#m                A            Am
It's breeding, and it's training, and it's something un-known,
     E              C#m         F#m    B7
That drives you and carries you home.       So it's 

Chorus:
A           B7       G#m
Run for the roses as fast as you can
     A          B7             G#m
Your fate is de-livered.  Your moment's at hand.
         A           B7             G#m         A
It's the chance of a lifetime, in a lifetime of chance,
         F#m                         B7
And it's high time you joined in the dance.
     D                           A
It's high time you joined in the dance.
