Springtime In Alberta
by:  Ian Tyson

capo 3rd fret

Verse 1:

G (strum once)            D
Should've seen it in your eyes
D                       G
I could never read your eyes'
G                   D
So lost in love was I
D                        G
It always takes me by surprise
G                        C
You were dreamin' of the south land
How your love comes and goes
C                  G
It's just like the weather babe
G                  Am
Only heaven really knows

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/i/ian_tyson/springtime_in_alberta_crd.html ]
Am                        D
Just like springtime in Alberta
D                       G
Warm sunny days and the skies of blue
G              D
Then without a warning
D                          G
Another winter storm comes ragin' through
G                 C
And the mercury's fallin'
C             Bm   G
I'm left all alone
G               Am   D
Springtime in Alberta
D                G
Chills me to the bone

Verse 2:

G (strum once)             D
I can see the storm clouds coming
D                            G
Lord they're dark across the sky
G                       D
The same look that I've seen so many times
D                          G
When I've looked into your eyes
G                      C
So I'll turn up my old collar
Pull my hat way down low
C                     G
Oh the wind's gettin' colder now
G                      Am
Droppin' down to near zero

Repeat Chorus:

Em              Am   D
Springtime in Alberta
D                G    D G (strum each chord once to end)
Chills me to the bone
