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

CH 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, some day he might fall
But he’s just here for the runnin’, that’s all

Kenny is known to steal a base for his high school baseball team
He gets a hit, now he’s on first, and watch him take that lead
His daddy is talkin’ ‘bout the big leagues. his coach wants to win first place
But Kenny’s just got his eye on second base (to CH)

BR Just let your spirit fly on down that road of life
Like a carefree child or a horse runnin' wild

CH: ‘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
And some days we’ll outrun the wind
And some day we might fall
But we’re just here for the runnin’, that’s all
