 Ian Tyson Four Strong Winds Lyrics:

 

Chorus

G                                         Am
Four strong winds that blow lowly,

          D7                G
Seven seas that run high,

                                        Am                       D7
All those things that don't change, Come what may.

             G                         Am
but our good times are all gone,

               D7                    G
And I'm bound for moving on.

              C                                         D7
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.
 

                G             Am
Think I'll go out to Alberta,

                 D7                     G
Weather's good there in the fall.

                                            Am                  D7
I got some friends that I can go a'working for,

           G                                Am
Still I wish you'd change your mind

         D7                       G
If I asked you one more time,

                C                                                     D7
But we've been through that a hundred times or more.
 

Chorus


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 ain't much for you to do
And the winds sure can blow cold way out there
 

Chorus
