Unlike all the other ladies
She looked so young and sweet
As she made her alone down that empty street
Down on mainstreet

Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me

Up to the mountains
Where I’m going to

Working for peanuts
Not a dime to spare
But I was lean and
Solid everywhere

We never even said a word,
we just walked out and got on that bike
And we rolled
And we rolled clean out of sight

No one standing in your way
Turning on the charm
Long enough to get you by
You’re still the same
You still aim high

On Album Night Moves
The song describes Michigan in the early 1960s. The song was Seger’s first highest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 peaking at number four.

I awoke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain’t it funny how the night moves

3. Against The Wind
Released in 1980
On Album Against the Wind
The song is a metaphor for running against the wind and keeping your wits about you.

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

2. Turn The Page
Released in 1973
On Album Back in ’72
The song would be number one if it weren’t for the popularity of our #1 song. The song was written just before Seger’s long break from touring while describing life on the road as a musician. The song was later covered by Metallica as a popular version of “Turn The Page”.

There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin’ the star again
There I go
Turn the page

1. Old Time Rock and Roll
Released in 1979
On Album Stranger in Town
The song may be best known for being in Tom Cruise’s film Risky Business. Even though the song only reached number twenty-eight on the Billboard Hot 100, the song is played at many dance parties while describing rock and roll of yesteryear.

Old time rock and roll
That kinda music just soothes the soul
I reminisce about the days of old
With that old time rock and roll
