“I’ve seen you smiling in the summer sun
I’ve seen your long hair flying when you run
I’ve made my mind up that it’s meant to be
Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me
Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me
Out where the rivers meet the sounding sea
You’re high above me now
You’re wild and free ah, but
Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me
Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me

Some people say that love’s a losing game
You start with fire
But you lose the flame
The ashes smolder
But the warmth’s soon gone
You end up cold and lonely on your own
I’ll take my chances babe
I’ll risk it all
I’ll win your love
Or I’ll take the fall
I’ve made my mind up girl
It’s meant to be
Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me
Someday lady you’ll accomp’ny me “

You have to love the subtlety with which Seger tosses out some serious emotion. The hopeless romantics of the world also have to like the confidence of the sentiment. Even though the relationship seems like a lost cause, he is sure that she will, in fact, “accomp’ny” him.
