OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four little ladies gonna promenade once inside the big ole ring
Get along home and swing, everybody swing now
Join your hands and circle left, walkin', talkin', round you bet
Allemande the corner, gonna weave the ring
Alberta Bound, Alberta Bound
Swing and whirl, promenade around
Alberta Bound, Alberta Bound
It's good to be Alberta Bound


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the head 2 couples gonna promenade, halfway round the big ole ring
Walk right in and square thru count 4 now
All the way around my friend, a right & left thru and turn again
Veer to the left and couples circulate
Half tag the line, scoot back boys
Scoot back girls, come on swing and whirl 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.
