Against The Wind by by Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band

Intro: 4/4 - Medium Rock Beat
      |    G    |    G    |    G    |    G    |

  G                           Bm
1. It seems like yes-te-rday___ But it was long a-go
  C                                  G
   Ja-ney was love-ly, she was the queen of my nights
  D                                C
   There in the dark-ness with the ra-di-o play-in' low
  G                                 Bm
   And the se-crets that we shared___ The moun-tains that we moved
  C                         G
   Caught like a wild-fire out of con-trol
                   C                                           D  |  D  |
   Till there was noth-in' left to burn and noth-ing left to prove

            Em       D               G
   And I re-mem-ber what she said to me
            Em            D            G
   How she swore that it nev-er would end
        Em               D      C
   I re-mem-ber how she held me oh so tight
  C                                D
   Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

      G               Bm   C                                G 
Chorus: A-gainst the wind___ We were run-nin' a-gainst the wind
                  C    -    Bm            Am     -     C         G
        We were young and strong, we were run-nin' a-gainst the wind

        |    G    |    G    |    G    |    G    |
          (wind)

  G                                  Bm
2. And the years rolled slow-ly past___ And I found my-self a-lone
  C                                G
   Sur-round-ed by stran-gers I thought were my friends
  D                              C
   I found my-self fur-ther and fur-ther from my home and I
  G                     Bm
   Guess I lost my way___ There were oh so ma-ny roads
          C                  G
   I was liv-ing to run and run-nin' to live
           C                                    D         |  D  |
   Ne-ver wor-ried a-bout pay-ing or e-ven how much I owed

            Em            D                       G
   Mov-in' eight miles a min-ute for months at a time
             Em           D               G
   Break-in' all of the rules that would bend
 Em             D             C
   I be-gan to find my-self search-in'
  C                           D
   Search-in' for shel-ter a-gain and a-gain

      G               Bm   C                                    G 
Chorus: A-gainst the wind___ A lit-tle some-thing a-gainst the wind
            C   -   Bm            Am    -     C         G  |  G  |  G  |  G  | 
        I found my-self seek-ing shel-ter a-gainst the wind 

Instr: |  G  |  G  |  Bm  |  Bm  |  C  |  G  |  D  |  C  |
       |  G  |  G  |  Bm  |  Bm  |  C  |  G  |  C  |  D  |  D  |

             Em           D        G
   Well those  drift-ers days are past me now
            Em       D               G
   I've got so much more to think a-bout
 Em       D            C
   Dead-lines and com-mit-ments
  C                 D
   What to leave in, what to leave out

      G               Bm   C                                  G 
Chorus: A-gainst the wind___ I'm still run-nin' a-gainst the wind
             C  -  Bm            Am     -     C         G    |  G  |
        I'm old-er now but still run-ning a-gainst the wind 
                  C  -  Bm              D     |  D  |
        Well I'm old-er now, and still run-nin'
                      C                    G
    ||: A-gainst the wind___ A-gainst the wind :||... repeat to fade - ad lib
