Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Against the wind  Highwaymen

[C]It seems like yesterday, [Em]but it was a long time ago
[F]She was lovely, she was the [C]queen of my nights
[G]There in the darkness with the [F]radio playing low.
[C]The secrets that we shared, [Em]the mountains that we moved
[F]Caught like a wild fire out of con[C]trol
Till there was [F]nothing left to burn
and nothing left to [G]prove.
And I [Am]remember [G]what she said to [C]me
How she swore [Am]that it would [F]never [C]end
I [Am]remember how she [G]held me oh, so [F]tight,
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know [G]then.   [C]

Against the [Em]wind,
[F]We were running against the [C]wind.
We were [F]young and [Em]strong,
We were [Dm]running a[F]gainst the w[C]ind.

The years rolled slowly past, 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 livin' to run and runnin' to live,

Never worrying about paying or how much I owed.

Movin' eight miles a minute for months at a time,

Breakin' all of the rules that would bend.

I began to find myself

Searching for shelter again and again.


Against the wind,

We were running against the wind.

I found myself seeking

Shelter against the wind.

All those drifter's days are passed me now

I've got so much more to think about

Deadlines and commitments,

What to leave in and what to leave out.

[Em]Against the wind,
[F]We were running against the [C]wind.
Well I'm [F]older [Em]now and still
[G]Running against the [F]wind
Against the [C]wind
