The first Saturday in May

Run For The Roses By Dan Fogelberg

Born in the valley
And raised in the trees
Of Western Kentucky
On wobbly knees
With momma beside you
To help you along
You'll soon be-a-growing up strong

Oh, 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

(chorus) And it's Run for the Roses
As fast as you can
Your fate is delivered
Your moment's at hand
It's the chance of a lifetime
In a lifetime of chance
And it's high time you joined in the dance
It's high time you joined in the dance

From sire to sire
It's born in the blood
The fire of a mare
And the strength of a stud
It's breeding and it's training
And it's something unknown
That drives you and carries you home

Terri, I have always loved this song but had never really listened to the words that closely. Thanks for sharing. (By the way, this is Vickie from Lilacs!)
