Four Strong Winds
by Ian & Sylvia

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change come what may
But our good times are all gone
And I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way

Think I'll go out to Alberta
Weather's good there in the fall
I 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

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change come what may
But our good times are all gone
And I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way

If I get there before the snow flies
And if things are goin' good
You could meet me if I sent you down the fare
But by then it would be winter
There ain't too much for you to do
And those winds sure can blow cold way out there

Four strong winds that blow lonely
Seven seas that run high
All those things that don't change come what may
But our good times are all gone
And I'm bound for moving on
I'll look for you if I'm ever back this way

Did no one bother to see if the lyrics match what they are singing? These are the entirely wrong lyrics. I know every Ian and Sylvia song and I don't know these lyrics.

Cindy Cornell

on Summer Wages

The Creators of Rain
Maybe written by Smokey and His Sister, (released 1967)

Also released by Ian and Sylvia

In the beginning, land was stained
Washed by the sun, desert, and plains
Then the Creators of the Land created rain

I was that barren, wasted land
I was too weak to stand
Then the Creators of Rain created you

High on a mountain growing bare
Land was plenty, trees were rare
Then the Creators of the Rain created air

I was that mountain growing bare
My life was empty, nothing there
Then the Creators of Air created you

There would be no land, no seas
No clouds, no trees for me without you

Life had forgot the caring of
Dreams that were lost to fade above
Then the Creators of Rain created love

I was that dream that love had made
To search in endless hope and faith
Then the Creators of Love created you
Created you, Created you
For me.
