Ride Like the Wind - Christopher Cross

Ride Like the Wind

Christopher Cross
80s soft rock pop classic rock yacht rock


This is the smoothest track from Chris Cross and really entered him into the mainstream. The song was originally going to be a part of Smokey and the Bandit but the producers decided that it was too slow for the high paced flick. Today the song is still an anthem to many who perform late night tasks that require them to "push the envelope" and make it through til morning!


Christopher Cross is an American singer-songwriter originally from Austin, Texas, known as an influential artist in American soft rock music. He has written or co-written all his own songs, with the exception of "Nature's Way" that appears on his 'Window' album. He's most famous for singing the tunes "Arthur's Theme" from the Dudley Moore film 'Arthur', which won him the Academy Award for Best Song in 1981 (alongside co-composers Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager, and Peter Allen), and the iconic yacht rock classic "Sailing".

Ride Like the Wind - Christopher Cross

It is the night, my body's weak
I'm on the run, no time for sleep
I've got to ride, ride like the wind
To be free again

And I've got such a long way to go
(Such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

I was born the son of a lawless man
Always spoke my mind
With a gun in my hand
Lived nine lives, gunned down ten
Gonna ride like the wind

And I've got such a long way to go
(Such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind, ride like the wind
Gonna ride the wind

Accused and tried and told to hang
I was nowhere in sight
When the church bells rang
Never was the kind to do as I was told
Gonna ride like the wind before I get old

It is the night, my body's weak
I'm on the run, no time for sleep
I've got to ride, ride like the wind
To be free again

And I've got such a long way to go
(Such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind
Ride like the wind

And I've a long way to go
(Such a long way to go)
To make it to the border of Mexico
So I'll ride like the wind, ride like the wind
Gonna ride the wind

Ride, ride like the wind
Ride
