Alberta Bound

Oh the prairie lights are burning bright,
The Chinook wind is moving in,
tomorrow night I’ll be Alberta bound;
Although I’ve done the best I could
My old luck ain’t been so good,
Tomorrow night I’ll be Alberta bound.

Alberta bound, Alberta bound, it’s good to be Alberta bound,
Alberta bound, Alberta bound, it’s good to be Alberta bound

Oh the skyline of Toronto is something you’ll get on to
But they say you’ve got to live there for a while;
And if you’ve got the money you can get yourself a honey
With a written guarantee to make you smile;
Oh it’s blowing in the city and the streets are brown and gritty
But you know there’s pretty girls all over town
But they never seem to find me and the one I left behind me
Is the reason that I’ll be Alberta bound.

Back to Cowboy Life


If you can't place us _ and I can';t hold that against you _ we were the rag-tag Aussie family you provided such a great day for early in December. Honestly, couldn't have come up with a better way to spend a winter day. It really was a highlight of the whole Alberta experience.
