Richard Petty Fans


Before he ever made the headlines
Or won the Winston cup
He survived his share of crashes
But he never did give up

The tracks in Carolina
Where all the Pettys ran
What kept the motors running
Way back then, were you the fans

He won seven at Daytona
It was STP and forty-three
King Richard is a legend
And he's a hero to me

When he wins he waves his hand
To the folks up in the stand
And he is dedicated
To all the Nascar fans

Well, I wish this year could last forever
But the race must go on
He'll hang up his helmet
But he never will be gone

I know he'll drive forever
In the heart of every fan
And he will be remembered
As the best that's ever been...
