Alberta Bound    (1972)

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

No one-eyed man could e'er forget.
The Rocky Mountain sunset.
It's a pleasure just to be Alberta bound.
I long to see my next of kin;
To know what kind of shape they're in.
An' 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.

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 somethin' you'll get onto,
But they say you've got to live there for a while.
And if you got the money.
You can get yourself a honey.
A written guarantee to make you smile.

But it's snowin' in the city,
And the streets are brown and gritty.
And I know there's pretty girls all over town.
Which never seem to find me.
And the one I left behind me,
Is the reason that 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.
It's good to be Alberta bound.
