Against The Wind (Bob Seger) - STING 21101†† (Thorsten Geppert)

 

(Opener): CIRCLE LEFT

Seems like yesterday - but it was long ago
ALLEMANDE your Corner - TURN the PARTNER by the RIGHT

ALLEMANDE LEFT your Corner - WEAVE it and go

Against the wind - we were runniní against the wind
We were young and strong

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - we were runniní against the wind

 

(Figure): Heads Square Thru there and go - Around the Corner lady do a Do Sa Do

Swing Thru my friend now Spin The Top and go - Recycle with that girl - Reverse Flutterwheel

Half a Rollaway - Star Thru - You Promenade your lady home there today

We were young and strong

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† - we were runniní against the wind

 

(Middle Break): CIRCLE LEFT

And the secrets that we shared, mountains that we moved

 

(Closer): CIRCLE LEFT

And the years rolled slowly past - and I found myself alone

 

(Tag): SWING there with that GIRL

†††††† ††- See Iím older now but Iím still runniní against the wind

ORIGINAL LYRICS:

 

Seems like yesterday - but it was long ago
Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights - There in the darkness with the radio playiní low

And the secrets that we shared, mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control - Til there was nothiní left to burn and nothiní 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 runniní against the wind
We were young and strong we were runniní against the wind

 

And the years rolled slowly past - and I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends - Found myself further and further from my home and I

Guess I lost my way - there were oh so many roads
I was liviní to run and runniní to live - Never worried about payiní or even how much I owe

 

Movin' eight miles a minute and for months at a time breakin all of the rules that would bend

I began to find myself searchiní searchin for shelter again and again

 

Against the wind - Little somethiní against the wind
I found myself seekin shelter against the wind

 

Well those drifters 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 runniní against the wind
I'm older now but still runniní against the wind

(Ending)

Well I'm older now but still runniní against the wind
