Against the Wind - Bob Seger  (4/4 - Key G)

Introduction:  G, G, G, G


Verse:

G                         G
It seems like yesterday,  
Bm                        Bm
But it was long ago.
C                              G
Jenny was lovely; she was the queen of my nights,
D                              C                   G
There in the darkness with the radio, playing low.
         G
And the secrets that we shared,  
Bm                         Bm
The mountains that we moved
C                    G
Caught like wildfire out of control,
               C                        D                      D
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove.


Bridge:

       [Em     D]               G
And I remember what she said to me,
       [Em            C]           G
How she swore that it never would end.
  [Em               D]        C
I remember how she held me,  oh so tight.
C                             D
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.


Chorus:

G           Bm   C                            G
Against the wind, we were running against the wind.
       [C         G/B            ][Am       C      ]   G     G    G     G  
We were young and strong, we were running against the wind.


Verse:

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.


Bridge:

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:

Against the wind,  a little something against the wind.
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind.


Solo: (1 verse)


Bridge:

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:

G           Bm   C                            G
Against the wind, I'm still running against the wind.
       [C  G/B          ][  Am       C     ]    G     G
I'm older now but still running against the wind.
       [C         G/B   ]          Am [Am  C]                 G     G
Well, I'm older now but still running       against the wind


Outro:

            C     C
Against the wind
            G     G
Against the wind
            C     C
Against the wind (still running)

            G
Against the wind (I'm still running against the wind)
            C     C

            G     G

            C     C
Against the wind (see the young man run)
            G     G

Against the wind (watch the young man running)
            G     G

            C     C
Against the wind (let the cowboys ride)
            G     G
Against the wind  (ohhhhh)
            C     C
Against the wind (let the cowboys ride)
            G     G
Against the wind (they ll be riding against the wind)
            C     C
Against the wind (against the wind)
            G     G
Against the wind (riding against the wind)
            C     C
Against the wind
