Willie Nelson

Willie Nelson - Against The Wind

WAYLON:

It seems like yesterday, but it was a long time ago

She was lovely, she was the queen of my nights

There in the darkness with the radio, playin' low

The secrets that we shared, the mountains that we moved

Caught like a wildfire out of control

There was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

JOHNNY:

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

CHORUS (ALL):

Against the wind

We were running against the wind

We were young and strong

But just running against the wind

WILLIE:

And 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 worrying about paying 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'

Searchin' for shelter again and again

CHORUS (ALL):

Against the wind

We were running against the wind

I found myself seekin'

Shelter against the wind

WILLIE:

All those drifter's days are passed me now

I've got so much more to think about

JOHNNY:

Deadlines and commitments

What to leave in, what to leave out

CHORUS (ALL):

Against the wind

We were running against the wind

Well I'm older now and still

Running against the wind

Against the wind

Against the wind

Against the wind
