We posted this song 2 years ago for the Kentucky Derby so it may look familiar to our loyal followers. The song was taken from Dan Fogelberg and we used this one - Lisman's version - for Spring Rush 1992. This year the song seems appropriate, as we have been making a RUN to keep the rose of Tau Lambda going. We still have some fight in us and we will continue to do what we can. But as you sit back, sing "My Old Kentucky Home", sip a mojito and sport the big hat... take a moment to yourself and reflect on our RUN FOR THE ROSES... and TAU LAMBDA FOREVER!
Off to college to be on your own
Walkin' 'round campus on wobbly knees, with sisters beside you to help you along
You'll soon be a-gro'in up strong.
All your childhood friendships and best friends through school
The memories that you shared, the love through and through-
Could never prepare you for what lies ahead; the run for the roses so red
AND IT'S RUN FOR THE ROSES AS FAST AS YOU CAN,
YOUR FATE IS DELIVERED, YOUR MOMENT'S AT HAND
IT'S THE CHANCE OF A LIFETIME, IN A LIFETIME OF CHANCE;
SO IT'S HIGH TIME YOU JOINED IN THE DANCE!
Sister to sister, it's born in the blood;
The beauty of a rose, the growth of the bud.
It's moving, it's exciting, And it's something unknown that drives you and carries you home.
