my lyricsbox
Born in the valley
And raised in the trees
Of Western Kentucky
On wobbly knees

With mama beside you
To help you along,
You'll soon be a'growin' 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

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

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
This song is from the album "The Innocent Age", "Greatest Hits", "Portrait: Music Of Dan Fogelberg From 1972-1997", "Playlist: The Very Best Of Dan Fogelberg" and "Definitive Collection".
