In the land of the long roads
High, lonesome prairies
Dreamin' of the springtime
First crocus in the snow
Coffee in a go-cup
He's headed for the oil rig
Land of shining mountains
Big Alberta sky

The old man in the castle
Red deer and the battle
Rivers in a dry land
Feed the cities of the plain
But nothin' lasts forever
On the Great Divide
Land of shining mountains
Big Alberta Sky

In the night, I have heard the thunder roll
In my days, I have felt the wind and rain
Like the cowboy said, I wish I'd seen the buffalo
Maybe they'll come back again

He's gonna get up early
Try and make a dollar
The only girl he wanted
Took the Greyhound for the coast
But she was bound for leavin'
She will not forget him
Or the land of shining mountains
Big Alberta sky
Land of shining mountains
Big Alberta sky
