Lirik Lagu Neil Young "Four Strong Winds"


Four Strong Winds adalah lagu melankolis tentang hubungan romantis yang gagal. Ada sebersit harapan untuk bertemu kembali di suatu tempat kelak, entah kapan (And if things are looking good, You could meet me if I send you down the fare). Namun harapan itu nampaknya tipis (If the good times are all gone... Then I’m bound for moving on).

Lirik Lagu Four Strong Winds
Neil Young


Think I’ll go out to Alberta,
Weather’s good there in the Fall.
I got some friends that I can go working for.
Still I wish you’d change your mind
If I asked you one more time,
But we’ve been through this 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
If the good times are all gone,
Then 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 looking good,
You could meet me if I send you down the fare.
But by then it would be Winter,
Not to 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
The good times are all gone,
So I’m bound for moving on.
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way.

Still I wish you’d change your mind
If I ask 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
If the good times are all gone,
Then I’m bound for moving on.
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way.
I’ll look for you if I’m ever back this way.
