Seven seas that run high
All these things that don't change come what May
But our good times have all gone
And I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way.................
This is one of my all time favorite songs - you may know it by Neil Young - even Johnny Cash sang it - but
it was written by ( and sung by ) Ian Tyson - during the folk movement of the late 60's early 70's Canada exported a lot of talent - Jodi Mitchell - Neil Young - Gordon Lightfoot - and I know I'm missing a ton of them here but they're the ones that come to mind.
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
and of course it makes me think of one of Canada's most breath taking provinces - when we think of Alberta
we think of this
If I get there before the snow flies
And if things are going good
You could meet me if I send you down the fare
But if you wait until it's winter
It will be no good
'Cause that wind sure can blow way out there
Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run dry
I never in my life time could have imagined associating our beloved Alberta with this
100,000 had to be evacuated due to this record breaking flooding....................
and it hurts me - more than I can say
This proud, beautiful province has been brought to her knees
and has brought me to mine.........................
heartfelt prayers to all who have been affected by this horrific act of nature.
