spring time in alberta lyrics – ian tyson

should’ve seen it in your eyes
i could never read your eyes’
so lost in love was i
it always takes me by surprise
you were dreamin’ of the south land
how your love comes and goes
it’s just like the weather babe
only heaven really knows

just like springtime in alberta
warm sunny days and the skies of blue
then without a warning
another winter storm comes ragin’ through
and the mercury’s fallin’

i’m left all alone
springtime in alberta
chills me to the bone
i can see the storm clouds coming
lord they’re dark across the sky

the same look that i’ve seen so many times
when i’ve looked into your eyes
so i’ll turn up my old collar
pull my hat way down low
oh the wind’s gettin’ colder now

droppin’ down to near zero
springtime in alberta
chills me to the bone
