The hills are high, the slope grows steeper;
Don’t think I’m gonna make it.
Then I’ll be loser, not a keeper.
Could I fool some – just fake it?

The way is hard and it grows darker;
Don’t think I’m gonna make it.
I’ve only passed the half-mile marker
A failure?  Can I take it?

I’ll bow my neck, keep persevering,
And when doubt comes, I’ll shake it.
I’ll win the race; I’ll hear the cheering.
I think I’m gonna make it!

Two fighting,
But not toe to toe –
At horn’s length.

— 

Two fighting
That the loser might
Stay away.

— 

Two fighting
That the winner might
Stay doe close.
