  • Think I'll go out to Alberta, weather's good there in the fall
    I 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 this a hundred times or more

    Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high
    All those things that don't change, come what may
    If the good times are all gone, and I'm bound for moving on
    I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

    If I get there before the snow flies, and if things are looking good
    You could meet me if I sent 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

    Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high
    All those things that don't change, come what may
    If the good times are all gone, so I'm bound for moving on
    I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

    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 that blow lonely, seven seas that run high
    All those things that don't change, come what may
    If the good times are all gone, and I'm bound for moving on
    I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.

    I'll look for you if I'm ever pass this wayWriter/s: IAN TYSON
