Edgar Villavert Combong sent me his song "Chasing the Wind." I like the lyrics based on the Book of Ecclesiastes as well as his excellent guitar playing.  - Richard Schletty

1. You spend your life working, enriching
But what do you gain, my friend?
Just rusting coins for your ruin
And bloody fighting among your kin, Yeah
Yes, it’s just like chasing the wind
Just like chasing the wind .....
 
2.  Why spend your life changing, and challenging
The Laws of the Living God
When generations come and go
But the world remains the same, Yeah
It’s just like chasing the wind
Just like chasing the wind .....

Repeat//Refrain
 
Enjoy your life while you still can
But live according to God’s Plan
For He has made you for His purpose
Believe in God and you’ll find peace and joy
 
Instrumental
 
3.  You spend your life searching and pondering
When this game of life shall end
But the answer you’ll never find
Until you see the face of the Holy One, Yeah
 
Repeat//Refrain
 
Enjoy your life while you still can
But live according to God’s Plan
For He has made you for His purpose
Believe in God and you’ll find peace and joy
Or, it’s just like chasing the wind
Just like chasing the wind
Just chasing the wind
