RUN FOR THE ROSES
By Dan Fogelberg 1982
 
 
VERSE1
You were out of the gate and taking the rail
Running along with the pack
Not always knowing just where you were going
But making sure not to look back
 
VERSE2
Rounding the corner and making a move
Running ahead for the lead
Putting behind you the things that might bind you
And letting your spirit run free
You sure did look happy to me
You sure did look happy to me
 
VERSE3
When you started to fade in the run for the roses
You never stopped trying to win
You just kept on running hoping for something
To make it all-right in the end
 
VERSE4
You hid dis-appointment with no sign of tears
You kept all of your dignity
I wish I had told you I know what youve gone thru
And I say now will you see
You were always a winner to me
You were always a winner to me
 
Although this song is primarily about Ricks father
It was also lyrically inspired in part
By the 1982 Dan Fogelberg Song
