Four Strong Winds

Four strong winds that blow lonely,

seven seas that run high;

all those things that don't change - come what may.

But our good times have all gone,

and I'm bound for moving on.

I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

Think I'll go out to Alberta,

Weather's good there in the fall.

I got some friends that I can go to workin’ for,

Still I wish you'd change your mind

If I’d ask you one more time,

But we've been through that a hundred times or more.


If I get there before the snow flies,

And if things are looking good,

You could meet me if I send you down the fare.

But by then it would be winter

there’s not too much for you to do

And those winds, they sure blow cold way out there.
