Four Strong Winds

Lyrics: Ian Tyson
Music: Ian Tyson

Played by David Gans with the New Riders of the Purple Sage in 2010.

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 are 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 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


If I get there before the snow flies, and if things are going good
You could meet me if I sent you down the fare
But by then it would be winter, there ain't too much for you to do
And those winds sure can blow cold way out there
