Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

All 4 ladies promenade once around you go
Turn your partner right a full turn, make a wrong way thar you know
Left hand in, men back up on down the line
Get ready now, throw in the clutch 3 times around
Now the race is on, we're going down the back stretch
My gal is running on the outside

When you meet do a dosado, promenade her home
I've got my gal, we're in the running, got to be moving on
Take a little walk around the ring now the race is on


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Basic, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 round, turn the girl you know
1 & 3 half square thru, face the sides you go
Right & left thru, turn your girl, star thru and then
Rock up and back, square thru 4 hands and now
The race is on look for the corner, swing
Swing her and then, allemande left come on back and promenade again
I've got my gal, we're in the running, got to be moving on
Take a little walk around the ring now the race is on


TAG

When you get back home, swing her
Now the race is done

The Race Is On
 
 

I feel tears wellin' up, cold and deep inside
Like my heart's sprung a big break
And this stab of loneliness, sharp and painful
That I may never shake
You might say that I was taking it hard
When 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

Well, the race is on and here comes Pride up the backstretch
Heartache's a-going to the inside
My Tears are holding back
An' 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 Heartache
And the winner loses all

One day I ventured in love, never once suspectin'
What the final results would be
Now I live in fear of wakin' up each mornin'
And findin' that you're gone from me
There's ache and pain in my heart for the day
I met the one I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win her
I came out in second place

Well, the race is on and here comes Pride up the backstretch
Heartache's a-going to the inside
My Tears are holding back
An' 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 Heartache
And the winner loses all

Lyrics by Don Rollins.
Recorded by George Jones.
