Richard Petty Fan Lyrics

by Alabama

Before he ever made the headlines or won the Winston cup
He survived his share of crashes but he never did give up
The tracks in Carolina where all the Petty's ran
What kept the motor's running, way back then were you the fans

He won seven at Daytona, it was STP and forty-three
King Richard is a legend and he's a hero to me
When he wins he waves his hand to the folks up in the stand
And he is dedicated to all the Nascar fans

Well, I wish this year could last forever but the race must go on
He'll hang up his helmet but he never will be gone
I know he'll drive forever in the heart of every fan
And he will be remembered as the best that's ever been
