​Looking Back Over My Shoulder

This song is by Yonder Mountain String Band and appears on the live album Mountain Tracks: Volume 4 (2006).

Looking back over my shoulder wondering how I made it hear
For all the smoking and the beer I put into me
Looking back over my shoulder wasn't all that long ago
There was nothing in this world I didn't know
And the bitter wind it came blowing in
And my fears were buried it could hide
Or that bitter wind, don't it chill you to the bone
If you roam all alone in the night

Looking back over my shoulder how many miles has it been
I still hear the barking dogs and they shout tonight
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
And that bitter wind it came blowing in
Lord and all I wanted was to shout out loud
But that bitter wind carries any mournful sound
With the words that should remain if they find me

Looking back over my shoulder got some miles on me now
There's not much more I could do to keep my heel from going down
I'm tired in my bones and I'm starting to wonder
Can we really call the rhythm when your living on the run
And that bitter wind it came rolling in
And my fear was moving and I could hide
Lord that bitter wind don't it chill you to the bone
When your running all alone in the night
