EPISODE 620 FOUR STRONG WINDS… ALBERTA IN SUMMER OF 2022 WHEN JACK BECAME PRIVATE JACKSON
THIS STORY IS BOTH PERSONAL AND UNIVERSAL…DON’T REJECT IT …setting is Alberta in summer 2022.
THE MUSIC KEPT COMING aT ME….”GUESS I’L GO OUT TO ALBERTA, WEATHER’S GOOD THERE IN THE FALL”
I still sing the song to myself at times…as do most Canadians of certain age in 1961…and today in 2022 it still resonates. (alan skeoch
Wish you could play the song when you see these pictures.)
(Four Strong Winds was written in or around 1961 by Ian Tyson.
According to Tyson, he was in a bar listening to Bob Dylan sing. He thought, “I can do that”, took out his guitar and started “fooling around”.
In half an hour he had written what has been called the greatest Canadian song of all time.)
Four strong winds that blow lonely, seven seas that run high
All those things that don’t change come what may
For our good times are all gone and I’m bound for movin’ on
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way
Guess I’ll go out to Alberta, weather’s good there in the fall
Got some friends that I can go to workin’ 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 before
If I get there before the snow flies and things are goin’ good
You could meet me if I sent you down the fare
But by then it would be winter, not too much for you to do
And the winds sure do blow cold way out there
NOTE: THIS IS REALLY AN IMPRESSION OF CANADA….NICE PLACE TO LIVE, RIGHT?
Jackson’s army friends…waving once they got a look at Molly in pink dress. Find her.
Giant Hogweed GOT here before we did. The park guide had never heard of it. Someone will get hurt for sure.
You may wonder how 40 to 70 buffalo escaped capture. they can be invisible…tae a look at picture above. There is a buffalo there….just a
few yards away. Revealed when photo shopped.
“GUESS I’LL GO OU TO ALBERTA
WEATHER’S GOOD THERE IN THE FALL
GOT SOME FRIENDS OUT THERE…”
