Tryin' to Outrun the Wind Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
He's a sad song singer, he plays a gut-stringer
With vagabond fingers,that follow his mind
To far away places, he reaches for traces
And touches the faces, he's long left behind
Verse 2
He'll keep you from knowing, where he's been, or going
But you'll see the distance, right there in his eyes
An, just short of stealing, he'll take your feelings
Pull at your heart strings, 'til they come untied
Verse 3
There once was a woman who made him turn lonesome
Her memory turns over and over again
He's like an old stallion who's longing for freedom
Tryin' to outrun the wind
Verse 4
Well, I've laughed with the sunshine, an' cried with the rains
I've had some bad nights, with the best of the blues
An' I go on pretending, with long-haired women
But I still get crazy when I think of you
Verse 5
There once was a woman who made him turn lonesome
Her memory turns over and over again
He's like an old stallion who's longing for freedom
Tryin' to outrun the wind
Verse 6
He's like an old stallion who's longing for freedom
Tryin' to outrun the wind
