AGAINST THE WIND -- Bob Seger
G Bm
It seems like yesterday, but it was long ago,
C G
Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights,
D C
there in the darkness with the radio, playin' low, and
G Bm
the secrets that we shared, the mountains that we moved,
C G
caught like a wildfire out of control,
C D
'till there was nothin' left to burn and nothin' left to prove.
Em D G Em C G
And I remember what she said to me, how she swore that it never would end.
Em D C
I remember how she held me oh so tight.
D
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
G Bm C G
Against the wind, we were runnin' against the wind.
C Bm Am C G
We were young and strong. We were runnin' against the wind.

G Bm
And the years rolled slowly past, and I found myself alone.
C G
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends.
D C
I found myself further and further from my home, and
G Bm
I guess I lost my way. There were oh so many roads.
C G
I was livin' to run and runnin' to live.
C D
Never worried about payin' or even how much I owed.
Em D G
Movin' eight miles a minute for months at a time,
Em C G
breakin' all of the rules that would bend.
Em D C D
I began to find myself searchin', searchin' for shelter again and again.
G Bm C G
Against the wind, little somethin' against the wind.
C Bm Am C G
I found myself seekin' shelter against the wind.


(Instrumental - 1st part)
Em D G
Well those drifter's days are past me now.
Em C G
I've got so much more to think about.
Em D C D
Dead lines and commitments, what to leave in, what to leave out.
G Bm C G
Against the wind, I'm still runnin' against the wind.
C Bm Am C G
I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind.
C Bm D
Well I'm older now and still runnin' ........
C G
(against the wind.....against the wind....) [repeat]

VERSE 1:
C Em G
You always won, ev'ry time you placed a bet.
C Em G
You're still damn good; no one's gotten to you yet.
F G C
Ev'ry time, they were sure they had you caught,
Em Am
you were quicker than they thought.
Dm G
You'd just turn your back and walk.

VERSE 2:
C Em G
You always said, the cards would never do you wrong.
C Em G
The trick you said, was never play the game too long.

A gambler's share; the only risk that you would take,
Em Am
the only loss you could forsake,
Dm G
the only bluff you couldn't fake.

CHORUS:
C
And you're still the same.
E A
I caught up with you yesterday.
Dm G
Movin' game to game; no one standin' in your way.
C E A
Turnin' on the charm - long enough to get you by.
Dm G
You're still the same. You still aim high.

VERSE 3:

And you're still the same.
C Em G
And you're still the same.

Movin' game to game.
