The Highwaymen - Against The Wind Lyrics


AGAINST THE WIND
Written by: Bob Seger
Peformed by: Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson & Waylon Jennings
Appears on: Highwayman-1985, The Highwayman Collection-2000, et al.

[Jennings:]
It seems like yesterday, but it was a long time ago.
She was lovely, she was the queen of our nights.
There in the darkness with the radio playin' low.
The secrets that we shared, the mountains that we moved,
Caught like a wild fire out of control,
There was nothin' left to burn and nothin' left to prove.
[Cash:]
And I remember what she said to me, how she swore that it would never end.
I remember how she held me, oh, so tight.
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

[All 3:]
Against the wind,
We were runnin' against the wind.
We were young and strong but just runnin'
Against the wind.

[Nelson:]
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.
I guess I lost my way, there were, oh, so many roads.
I was livin' to run and runnin' to live.
Never worryin' about payin' or how much I owed.
Movin' eight miles a minute for months at a time,
Breakin' all of the rules I could bend.
I began to find myself searchin' for shelter again and again.

[All 3:]
Against the wind,
We were runnin' against the wind.
I found myself seekin' shelter
Against the wind.

[Nelson:]
All those drifter's days are passed me now.
I've got so much more to think about.
[Cash:]
Deadlines and commitments,
What to leave in, what to leave out.

[All 3:]
Against the wind,
We were runnin' against the wind.
We found ourselves seekin' shelter,
Against the wind.

Against the wind.
Against the wind.
[Fade.]
Against the wind.
