Subject: Dawn Run - Need Lyrics & Chords
From: Mick Lowe
Date: 20 Jan 99 - 08:27 PM

Hi All,
I'm looking for the lyrics and chords to a sung entitled "Dawn Run".. I am led to believe it was recorded if not penned by Foster & Allen (you may knock them but I wish I had their money)..

Thanks in advance
Mick

Thanks.

Foster and Allen perform THE BALLAD OF DAWN RUN on their album "Remember You're Mine." It's also on a video called "The Magic of Foster and Allen."

I wasn't able to find any lyrics or sound samples.

Now I'm not sure if these are all right but it is all the verses and the best I could do while trying to listen to the song and write the lyrics down at the same time. Sorry I can't help with the chords. I did however did download the song and as someone said before you can see it on you tube.
I hope this helps a little.
Feel free to put in the correct lyrics if I've screwed up.

DAWN RUN

Dawn Run, riding through the morning,
Striving through the icy winter's chill
Dawn run, hooves beat out a warning,
Heart and muscles stretching up the hill
Dawn Run, Dawn Run

Down on a farm in County Court
In nineteen seventy eight
A foul was born that was
To take her place among the great

A lovely jumping pedigree
Her story was begun
When in the racing calendar
Appeared the name Dawn Run

Dawn Run, riding through the morning,
Striving through the icy winter's chill
Dawn run, hooves beat out a warning,
Heart and muscles stretching up the hill
Dawn Run, Dawn Run

In Rosebridge in Kilkenny
Is a trainer of renown
At Patty Mullin's stable
The mare soon settled down

And in the third race of her life
At Buddy Bagen Park
She won her maiden bumper
The mare had made her mark

After two more bumper wins
The well-known Ribbon Black
She took to winning hurdles
With Tony on her back

And then in nineteen eighty four
She lead them all a dance
She won the champion hurdles
Of England, Ireland, France

Dawn Run, riding through the morning,
Striving through the icy winter's chill
Dawn run, hooves beat out a warning,
Heart and muscles stretching up the hill
Dawn Run, Dawn Run

Already in the history books
She'd found her well earned place
But now her next big challenge
Was to win the Steeple Chase

To Naven on a rainy day
They came from near and far
And saw what they all wanted
A chasing super star

A year laid up with injuries
She threw a challenge down
And in the Durkin Brother's race
She punched up Punch's Town

In just the fifth chase of her life
John Jolene set up
To ride her in the big one
The Chugnin Gold Cup

He tried to run them off their feet
But couldn't quite get free
For Runnin' Skip enjoyed the trip
And kept her company

She had them beaten up the hill
But danger loomed behind
Two horses full of running
Each with victory in mind

I saw her beaten at the last
At best she might be third
But John, John he knew better
And said the magic word

With bursting heart and thrusting head
She made it to the line
And Wayward Lad he knew he'd met
The greatest of all time

Dawn Run, riding through the morning,
Striving through the icy winter's chill
Dawn run, hooves beat out a warning,
Heart and muscles stretching up the hill
Dawn Run, Dawn Run

That race I will remember
In my memory of sleep
The crowd, the cheers, the tears,
The dream, become reality

And though we'll never see her more
Her place in history's won
Forever Queen of Chugnin
That magic mare Dawn Run

Dawn Run, riding through the morning,
Striving through the icy winter's chill
Dawn run, hooves beat out a warning,
Heart and muscles stretching up the hill
Dawn Run, Dawn Run

Dawn Run

I think that's more likely to be County Cork!

Chorus
Dawn Run – riding through the morning, striding through the icy winter chill
Dawn Run – hooves beat out a warning, heart and muscles stretching up the hill
Dawn Run, Dawn Run

Down on a farm in County Cork in 1978
A foal was born that was to take her place among the Great
A lovely jumping pedigree her story was begun
When in the Racing Calendar appeared the name "Dawn Run"

Chorus

Goresbridge in Kilkenny has a trainer of reknown
At Paddy Mullins stable the mare soon settled down
And in the third race of her life at Ballybeggan Park.
She won her maiden Bumper, the mare had make her mark

After two more bumper wins in the well known red and black
She took to winning hurdles with Tony on her back
And then in 1984 she led them all a dance
She won the Champion Hurdles of England, Ireland, France

Chorus

Already in the history book she found her well earned place
And now her next big challenge was to win a Steeplechase
To Navan on a rainy day they came from near and far
And saw what they all wanted – the Chasing Superstar

A year laid up with injuries she threw her challenge down
And in the Durkan-Brothers race she punched up Punchestown
In just the 5th chase of her life Jonjo ´Neill sat up
To ride her in the big one, the Cheltenham Gold Cup

He tried to run ´em of their feet but couldn´t quite get free
For Run and Skip enjoyed the trip and kept her company
She had him beaten up the hill but danger loomed behind
Two horses full of running, each with victory in mind

I saw her beaten at the last, at best she might be third
But Jonjo knew her better, and he said the magic words
With bursting heart and thrusting head she made it to the line
And Wayward Lad he knew he met the Greatest of all time

That race I will remember in my memory I´ll see
The crowd the dreams the cheers the tears become reality
And though we never see her more her place in history's won
Forever Queen of Cheltenham, that magic mare Dawn Run

Chorus
