From the album Crooked Path

Song clip



Why They Run the Race ©2005  Michael Jerling


Well itís Boomtown or Bust
In the dollar we trust. but thatís nothiní new
Now he thinks heís Diamond Jim
And the odds donít apply to him

The wind on your shoulders 
And a feeling in your gut
That this time it will be different
That this time youíll double up
And the last shall be first
And the favorite shall place
And thatís why they run the race

Well you count me out Ďcause you wonít see
Thereís a winnerís heart inside of me
If this wheel of fate would just stand still
If these legs could fly and they will

The wind on my shoulders 
And a feeling in my blood
That this time it will be different
That this time Iíll make a run
And the last shall be first
With the sun bright in my face
And thatís why they run the race

Now itís Boomtown or Bust
In the dollar we trust, but thatís nothiní new
If this wheel of fate could just stand still
If these streets could sing and they will

The wind on your shoulders
And a feeling in your gut
That this time it will be different
That this time youíll make the cut
And the last shall be first 
With the sun bright in your face
And thatís why they run
And thatís why they run
And thatís why they run the race
