Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain 3/4 round the ring
Join hands, circle to the left go walking round you go
Allemande left your corner girl, box the gnat at home
Same girl left allemande and weave the ring
Alberta bound, Alberta bound
Dosado and promenade
Alberta bound, Alberta bound
It's good to be Alberta bound


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

1 & 3 (2 & 4) go up and back, then you flutter wheel
When you're done curlique, then you walk & dodge
Swing thru with the outside two, men run to the right
Tag the line and all turn right
Wheel & deal and pass thru
U-turn back, swing your corner and promenade
Alberta bound, Alberta bound
It's good to be Alberta bound

Alberta Bound
 
 

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.

Lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot.
Recorded by Gordon Lightfoot.
