                       1                       2m                  5                     1                  
Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high,

           
     1                          2m                            5                     
All those things that don't change, come what may.

        
      1                             2m                  5                             1                  
But our good times are all gone, and I'm bound for moving on.

            2m                 3(or6m)           5                         

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 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 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 do blow cold way up there.
