#15 in 1965.

#1.
G                                             C
I feel tears wellin' up from deep inside like my heart's 
         G
goin' to break.
G                                               D
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful that I may never shake.
G                                                 C
You might say that I was taking it hard since you gave me the 
          G
final goodbye.
G                                                       D
But don't you wager that I'll hide my sorrow when I may break 
               G
right down and cry.

CHORUS:
G
Now the race is on and here comes Pride up the backstretch,
C                             G
Heartaches are going to the inside.
G                          D
My Tears are holding back, they're tryin' not to fall.
G                                          C
My Heart's out of the running, True Love's scratched 
             G
for Anothers Sake.
G
The race is on and it looks like Heartaches..and the 
D            G
winner loses all.

(INTERLUDE:)

#2.
G
One day I ventured in love, never once suspectin' what 
    C                  G
the final result would be.
G
How I lived in fear of wakin' up each morning,
    D
and findin' that you're gone from me.
        G
There's achin' and pain in my heart for the name of 
    C                     G
the one that I'll never replace.
G                                          D             G
Somebody new came up to win her and I came out in second place.

CHORUS:
G
Now the race is on and here comes Pride up the backstretch,
C                             G
Heartaches are going to the inside.
G                          D
My Tears are holding back, they're tryin' not to fall.
G                                          C
My Heart's out of the running, True Love's scratched 
             G
for Anothers Sake.
G
The race is on and it looks like Heartaches..and the 
D            G
winner loses all.
