Pushing Back the Wind©
words and music Grant Maloy Smith

There's never been a day I didn't fall in love In love with you again When I try to change It's like I'm pushing back the wind There's always something wrong Living in this world Sometimes folks don't feel like they belong We've got to talk them in 'Cause they're just pushing back the wind I put these hands to work each day They're rough and they show my age But I held our babies Gentle and true Like the way that I held Like the way that I held you We're far from where we came Working in these fields Breathing in this air When I pray for rain It's like I'm pushing back the wind I put these hands to work each day They're rough and they show my age But I held our babies Gentle and true Like the way that I held Like the way that I held you So let me say again Living without you That's like pushing back the wind
