HERE FOR THE RUNNIN’
(By Lanny Sherwin and Steve Key)

Verse 1: Lightnin’ is a thoroughbred, Kentucky born and raised,
Folks say he might win it all, he’s got what it takes.
His owner is in it for the money,
His jockey wants a victory lap,
But Lightnin’, he don’t care ’bout none of that.

Chorus: He’s just here for the runnin’,
For the sunshine on his face.
First or last, slow or fast,
He just loves the race.
Some days he’ll outrun the wind,
And some days he might fall,
But he’s just here for the runnin’ – that’s all.

Verse 2: Kenny is known to steal a base for his high school baseball team.
He gets a hit, now he’s on first, watch him take that lead.
His daddy’s thinkin’ ’bout the big leagues,
His coach wants to win First Place,
But Kenny’s just got his eye on second base.

Chorus
Bridge: You gotta let your spirit fly down that road of life,
Like a carefree child or a horse runnin’ wild.

Chorus: ‘Cause we’re just here for the runnin’,
For the sunshine on our face.
First or last, slow or fast,
We’re all in that race.
Some days we’ll outrun the wind,
And some days we might fall,
But we’re just here for the runnin’, that’s all.
