four strong winds that blow lonely
seven seas that run high
all those things that won't change come what may
if the good times all are gone
then 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
got some friends that I could go to working for
still I wish you'd change your mind
if I asked you one more time
but we've been through that a hundred times or more

:/:four strong winds...:/:

if I get there before the snow flies
and things are looking good
you culd join me if I send you down the fare
but by then it would be winter
not too much for you to do
and those winds sure can blow cold way out there
