Chad Mitchell Trio

The Chad Mitchell Trio – also known as the Mitchell Trio – were a North American vocal group who became known during the 1960s. They performed folk songs, some of which were traditionally passed down and some of their own compositions. Unlike many fellow folk music groups, none of the trio played instruments. They became popular in some quarters, and were particularly notable for performing satirical songs that criticized current events during the time of the cold war, the civil rights movement, and the Vietnam War, in a less subtle way than the typical folk music and singer-songwriter musicians of their time. 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 look for you if I'm ever back this way
Think I'll go out to Alberta
Weather's good there in the fall

Got some friends I can go to working for
Still I wish you change your mind
If I asked you one more time
But we've been through that a hundred times or more

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 by then it would be winter

Ain't too much for you to do
And those winds sure can blow cold way out there
