Bob Seger vs. The Highwaymen



Against The Wind
Bob Seger
It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janie was lovely
She was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness
With the radio
Playin’ low and
The secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
‘Til there was nothing left to burn
And nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me
Oh so tight
Wish I didn’t know now
What I didn’t know then

Against the wind
We were runnin’ against the wind
We were young and strong
We were runnin’ against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers
I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further
From my home and I
Guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was livin’ to run
And runnin’ to live
Never worried about payin’
Or even how much I owed
Movin’ eight miles a minute
For months at a time
Breakin’ all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searchin’
Searchin’ for shelter
Again and again

Against the wind
A little somethin’ against the wind
I found myself seekin’ shelter
Against the wind

Well those drifter’s days are past me now
I’ve got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in
What to leave out

Against the wind
I’m still runnin’ against the wind
I’m older now but still runnin’
Against the wind
Well I’m older now
And still runnin’
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind
Still runnin’
Against the wind
I’m still runnin’ against the wind
Against the wind
I’m still runnin’
Against the wind
I’m still runnin’ against the wind
Against the wind
Still runnin’
Against the wind
Runnin’ against the wind
Runnin’ against the wind
Against the wind
See the young man run
Against the wind
Watch the young man run
Against the wind
Watch the young man runnin’
Against the wind
He’ll be runnin’ against the wind
Against the wind
Let the cowboys ride
Against the wind
Against the wind
Let the cowboys ride
Against the wind
They’ll be ridin’ against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind
Ridin’ against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind
Ride
Ride
Ride
Ride



Against The Wind
The Highwaymen
It seems like yesterday

How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn’t know now
What I didn’t know then

Against the wind
We were runnin’ against the wind
We were young and strong
But just runnin’ against the wind

The years rolled slowly past
And 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

What to leave in
What to leave out

Against the wind
We were runnin’ against the wind
We found ourselves seekin’ shelter
Against the wind

Against the wind
Against the wind

  2. You are playing tricks now. You just repeat the same songs and no-one can tell the difference....

  3. Oh puleeze - let it go! Move on...I'm starting to agree with Adullamite, so you know it's getting bad.

  4. Wouldn't Bob Seger be outnumbered by The Highwaymen, who would beat him up and shave his beard and hair?

  8. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Sandie!!! It is indeed a great song, and I am glad this reminded you of some good times.

  9. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Adullamite!!! You not being able to tell the difference between those two versions should help make it quite clear to everyone else that the things I have been leaving hints about you are all very sadly true.

  10. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Grace!!! Your crankiness is not quite as endearing as it used to be.

  11. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Lavender!!! Well, there are only two of The Highwaymen still with us, and I think both of them spend most of their time trying to become as mellow as possible.

  12. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Mike!!! I am really glad you enjoyed this. When it comes to Adullamite and Grace, I try to consider the source.

  13. Alas, my dear Adullamite, as much as I would love to see her jerk a knot in your tail, I still have some sympathy left.

  14. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! Yeah, aside from not knowing how the song could be done any better than what Seger did with it, The Highwaymen version made me cringe a lot. (Just don't tell Adullamite and Grace that I said so--okay?)
