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

Intro:  G, G, G, G


Verse 1:
-------

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.


Pre-Chorus:
----------

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


Verse 2:
-------

G                          G
And the years rolled slowly past.
Bm                     Bm
And I found myself alone.
C                              G
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends, 
D                              C                   G
I found myself further and further from my home. 
         G
And I guess I lost my way.
Bm                         Bm
There were oh, so many roads.
C                        G
I was living to run, and running to live,
               C                        D            D
Never worrying about paying, or even how much I owed.


Pre-Chorus:
----------

       [Em     D]               G
Runnin' 8 miles a minute for months at a time,
       [Em            C]           G
breaking all of the rules that would bend. 
  [Em               D]        C
I begin to find myself just searching,
C                             D
Searching for shelter again and again.


Chorus:
------

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

Pre-Chorus:
----------

       [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
Deadlines and commitments;  
C                             D
What to leave in, what to leave out.


Chorus:
------

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