[G] It seems like yesterday,
[Bm] but it was long ago.
[C] Janey was lovely; she was the [G]queen of my nights.
[D]There in the darkness with the [C]radio, playing low.
[G]And the secrets that we shared,
[Bm] the mountains that we moved,
[C]Caught like wildfire [G]out of control
till there was [D]nothing left to burn and nothing left t[D]o prove.
And I re[Em]member [D]what she said to [G]me.
How she [Em]swore that it [C]never would [G]end.
I rememb[Em]er how she held[D] me, oh s[C]o tight.
[C]Wish I didn't know now what I [D]didn't know then.
[G]Against the [Bm]wind.[C] We were running against the [G]wind.
We were [C]young and strong, we w[Am7]ere r[C]unning against the [G]wind.
[G]And the years rolled slowly past.
[Bm]And I found myself alone.
[C]Surrounded by strangers I tho[G]ught were my friends.
I [D]found myself further and furt[C]her from my home.
A[G]nd I guess I lost my way.
[Bm]There were oh, so many roads.
I was [C]living to run, and [G]running to live,
Never[D] worrying about paying, or eve[C]n how much I owed.
Runn[G]in' 8 miles a minute for months at a time.
[Bm]Breaking all of the rules that would bend.
I[C] begin to find myself jus[G]t searching.
[D]Searching for shelter [C]again and again.
[G]Against the [Bm]wind. A [C]little something against the[G] wind.
I fo[C]und myself seeking [Am7]shelter [C]against the [G]wind.
(Solo for 1st 2 stanzas of verse)
[G]Well those drifter's days are past me now.
[Bm]I've got so much more to think about.
[C]Deadlines and com[G]mitments.
[D]What to leave in. [C]What to leave out.
[G]Against the [Bm]wind.
[C]I'm still running against the[G] wind.
I'm [C]older now but [Am7]still running ag[C]ainst the [G]wind.
Well I'm [C]older now and still [Am7]running ag[C]ainst the [G]wind.
(alternate G & C to fade)
Against the [C]wind. Against the w[G]ind. Against the w[C]ind -- still running.
Against the w[G]ind -- I'm still r[Am7]unning a[C]gainst the w[G]ind.
Against the [C]wind -- running against the w[G]ind
