The Race Lyrics

by Kris Kristofferson

The race is harder than arithmatic
some will say it can't be won
so it gets harder when your shoes are snake ( Not sure of this lyric)
but I had set my mind to run.

but it was harder than I bargined for
broken dreams at evey turn
I had hard enough to almost make it through
and a lesson yet to learn.

I slipped at fell before the finish line
just when it seemed I couldn't loose
I can fall anytime you want me too
you are the shit beneath my shoe.
