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

 

Estas são algumas das palavras que ficam na nossa cabeça ao ouvir a canção de Bob Seger.

Eu também continuo a correr contra o Vento! Desde pequeninho que corro contra todos os ventos que molestavam os meus trilhos. Por vezes os ventos eram galegos, gélidos, que avançavam pelas minhas montanhas até me tornarem roxo como um lírio das montanhas do Gerês.

Havia alturas em que o vento quase me arrancava o couro cabeludo mas esses ventos eram saudáveis. Hoje os ventos são outros! Tal como os cavalos da capa do disco de Bob Seger, eu também via os nossos garranos correndo furiosos contra o Vento. Continuo a correr contra os ventos!

Ventos desvastadores que sopram permanentemente no meu espírito. Sempre, sempre against the wind. Por isso, a Rádio Ventor, vai colocar aqui para vocês, a letra desta bela canção. Against the Wind! Ouçam o Bob Seger!

Bob Seger

 

Against the Wind

It 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 playing 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 living to run and running to live

Never worryied about paying or even how much I owed

Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time

Breaking all of the rules that would bend

I began to find myself searching

Searching for shelter again and again

Against the wind

A little something against the wind

I found myself seeking 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'

I'm still runnin' against the wind

I'm still runnin'

I'm still runnin' against the wind

Still runnin' Runnin' against the wind

Runnin' against the wind

See the young man run

Watch the young man run

Watch the young man runnin'

He'll be runnin' against the wind

Let the cowboys ride

Let the cowboys ride

They'll be ridin' against the wind

Against the wind ...

O Ventor gosta de música e de instrumentos musicais e, entre eles, um dos mais apreciados é a gaita galega, como dizíamos em Adrão, 50 anos atrás
