Looking back over my shoulder wondering how I made it here,
For all the smoking and the beer I couldn't tell ya
Looking back over my shoulder wasn’t all that long ago,
There was nothing in this world I didn’t know

Then a bitter wind, it came blowing in,
And my fear was more than any man could hide,
Lord that bitter wind, don’t it chill you to the bone,
When you're runnin' all alone in the night?

Looking back over my shoulder how many miles has it been,
Will I still hear the barking dogs and the shouts of men?
Looking back over my shoulder I see things I should have done,
And I’ve got a funny feeling that I’ve seen my final sunrise

A bitter wind it came blowing in,
Lord and all I wanted was to shout out loud,
But a bitter wind carries any mournful sound,
The one i'm sure to make if they find me

Looking back over my shoulder got some miles on me now,
Not much more that I could do to keep my deal from going down
I’m tired in my bones and I've started to wonder,
Can you really call it living when you're living on the run?

That bitter wind it came blowin' in,
And my fear was more than any man could hide,
Lord that bitter wind, don’t it chill you to the bone,
When your running all alone in the night?
