Reluctantly crouched at the starting line
The green light flashes, the flags go up
They deftly maneuver and muscle for rank
Reckless and wild, they pour through the turns

The fans get up and they get out of town
Still driving and striving as fast as he can
And long ago somebody left with the cup
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns
He's going the distance
She's all alone

He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
No trophy, no flowers, no flashbulbs, no wine
Bowel-shaking earthquakes of doubt and remorse
In his mind, he's still driving, still making the grade
She's hoping in time that her memories will fade
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
And long ago somebody left with the cup
And thinking of someone for whom he still burns
'Cause he's going the distance
She's all alone

He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
He's fighting and biting and riding on his horse
He's going the distance
He's going the distance
