Lyrics

There's a bad storm moving in across the prairie sky
The clouds roll like thunder, the lightning splits the night
I'm alone with your memory, the darkness and the pain
The trees are trembling in the wind, I hear the falling rain

And oh, sweet Maggie Lee, do you remember me?
I used to be your sweetheart out by the rolling sea
I came here to this prairie town when the stakes were running high
Now the boom's gone bust,
the works played out, the money's running dry

Every day I walk the banks of the ice-fed river Bow
And watch the river running east, that's where I'd like to go
I've seen the streets of Calgary, I've known a prairie sky
I've made and lost a fortune since I left and made you cry
And now I wonder why

INSTRUMENTAL

And you said I should have stayed, we might have settled down
But the western plains they called to me and took me from your town
There's not a thing that I can do to stop this falling rain
But if ever I can find a way, I'll hold you once again

Every day I walk the banks of the ice-fed river Bow
I watch the river running east, that's where I'd like to go
I've seen the streets of Calgary, I've known a prairie sky
I've made and lost a fortune since I left and made you cry
And now I wonder why

Every day I walk the banks of the ice-fed river Bow
I watch the river running east, that's where I'd like to go
I've seen the streets of Calgary, I've known a prairie sky
I've made and lost a fortune since I left and said goodbye
And now I wonder why
