  • Lyrics: Why They Run the Race Well it’s Boomtown or Bust In the dollar we trust. but that’s nothin’ new Now he thinks he’s Diamond Jim And the odds don’t apply to him The wind on your shoulders And a feeling in your gut That this time it will be different That this time you’ll double up And the last shall be first And the favorite shall place And that’s why they run the race Well you count me out ‘cause you won’t see There’s a winner’s 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 I’ll make a run And the last shall be first With the sun bright in my face And that’s why they run the race Now it’s Boomtown or Bust In the dollar we trust, but that’s nothin’ 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 you’ll make the cut And the last shall be first With the sun bright in your face And that’s why they run And that’s why they run And that’s why they run the race
