Seger, Bob - Against The Wind Lyrics

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playlng low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
Against the wind

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 worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searchin'
Searchin' for shelter again and again
Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifters 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

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still running
Against the wind
Well I'm older now and still running
Against the wind

  15. Kimmy Rainey

    I'm in my 20s but my daddy raised me so right. ❤

    Justin Ditty

    29 years old and it's one of my all-time favorites to play on guitar (6 and 12-string acoustic).

    Kimmy Rainey

    @Justin Ditty nice! I'm only 26. This is one of those songs where I just wanna be sitting on the beach drinking and swaying to it. Its nostalgic to me even though I wasnt born when it came out lol

  16. Nancy Fribbs

  18. Roger Dean

    Amazing analogy of life....

  19. Ted Solidays

    My father passed away in November of 2017. His favorite song was Sunday Morning Coming Down by Kris Kristofferson. It was just his era...and i can tell you he loved Bob Seger and knew what real music and real life was like. Livin on his Harley with no care in the world for things today like internet. But this is my time to live on with all he taught me and he has been on my mind so song after song i play brought me here. Miss him dearly

  20. Filipe Monteiro de sousa Gal

    Aqui no Brasil fizeram um brega music desse som e ficou foda🇧🇷

  21. Rose Mooney

    Once in a while when I was alone and so busy with two jobs I used to go get coffee and donuts on an early Saturday morning around 4:00 am and hit the road headed into the sunrise. Always played his songs. It just seemed to take my mind off of everything for a while. Some songs never get old. They just never get old. They're part of our story in a time gone by so fast.

  22. Carda Berge

    I saw him in concert in the early 80s and loved it so I have been
    Listening to him for many years I am 76 and plan on listening
    For some years to come

    My dad in 1967, when he was 16 got hear Seger play at a frat party at Michigan University and said he was hooked ever since. Seger eventually played a gig at schoolcraft I believe after they put 2 grand together for an event. I believe that's how the story my dad told goes although i may be wrong.
