50 Days, 50 Songs to the 50 Years on the Carefree Highway Concert

Day 48

Being down on your luck, going home, wanting to see your family, missing the people you love—they’re common themes in many of Gordon Lightfoot’s songs. This song expresses all of that.

Oh the prairie lights are burnin’ bright

The Chinook wind is a movin’ in

Tomorrow night I’ll be Alberta bound.

Though I’ve done the best I’ve could,

My old luck ain’t been so good,

And tomorrow night I’ll be Alberta bound.

Alberta Bound, Gordon Lightfoot
