Against the wind  Bob Seger

[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.
And the [G]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.

CHORUS:
[G]Against the [Bm]wind.[C] We were running against the [G]wind.
C * Am7 C G
We were young and strong, we were running against the wind.

VERSE2:
And the years rolled slowly past.
And I found myself alone.
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends.
I found myself further and further from my home.
And I guess I lost my way.
There were oh, so many roads.
I was living to run, and running to live,
Never worrying about paying, or even how much I owed.
Runnin' 8 miles a minute for months at a time.
Breaking all of the rules that would bend.
I begin to find myself just searching.
Searching for shelter again and again.

CHORUS 2:
Against the wind. A little something against the wind.
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind.

VERSE 3:
(Solo for 1st 2 stanzas of verse)
Well those drifter's days are past me now.
I've got so much more to think about.
Deadlines and commitments.
What to leave in. What to leave out.

CHORUS 3:
Against the wind.
I'm still running against the wind.
I'm older now but still running against the wind.

OUTRO:
C * Am7 C
Well I'm older now and still running against the wind.
(alternate G & C to fade)
Against the wind. Against the wind. Against the wind -- still running.
Against the wind -- I'm still running against the wind.
Against the wind -- I'm still running.
Against the wind -- I'm still running against the wind.
Against the wind -- still running.
Against the wind -- running against the wind -- running against the wind
Against the wind -- see the young man run.
Against the wind -- watch the young man run.
Against the wind -- watch the young man running.
Against the wind -- he'll be running against the wind.
Against the wind -- let the cowboys ride.
Against the wind -- Oooh
Against the wind -- let the cowboys ride.
Against the wind -- they'll be riding again the wind.
Against the wind -- against the wind.
Against the wind -- riding against the wind.
Against the wind -- against the wind.
Ride, ride, ride, ride, ride -- against the wind.

P.S. I listen to the version off the "Greatest Hits" cassette.
Thanks, Budd phth_tlh@hal.lamar.edu
