Track Name: Whirlaway the Horse
Bet on a long shot a colt in the third
paid out considerable broke me from miserable
Cashed my winnings & built the bar
called it The Whirlaway that was the pony's name
'41-'42 Horse Of The Year
Triple Crown victory he's been real good to me
Child of Blenheim & Dustwhirl
British blood pumping that chestnut was something
Not long ago Whirlaway died
it's his picture here on my arm
If you're in here drinking just raise a glass to him
our good old lucky charm
