Would it be this version that you're after DD?

Spring Time in Alberta
Ian Tyson/Slick Fork Music/ 1990

Should have seen it in your eyes
I could never read those eyes
So lost in love was I
They'd always take me by surprise
You were dreaming of the southland
Ah, your love comes and goes
It's just like the weather babe
Only heaven really knows

Chorus:
Just like spring time in Alberta
Warm sunny days endless skies of blue
Then without a warning
Another winter storm comes raging through
And the mercury's fallin'
I'm left all alone
Just like spring time in Alberta
Chills me to the bone

I can see the storm clouds comin'
Lord they're dark across the sky
The same look that I've seen so many times
When I've looked into your eyes,
So I'll turn up my old collar
Pull my hat way down low
Wind's getting colder now
Dropping down to near zero

chorus

Spring time in Alberta
Chills me to the bone


regards, Yvonne

Guest, you may have set an all-time record for the tersest request ever posted on Mudcat. Nothin' wrong with that, of course. Found here by using Google.

SPRINGTIME IN ALBERTA
(Ian Tyson, Slick Fork Music, 1990.)

Should have seen it in your eyes. I could never read those eyes.
So lost in love was I, they'd always take me by surprise.
You were dreaming of the Southland. Ah, your love comes and goes.
It's just like the weather, babe. Only heaven really knows.

(Chorus:) Just like springtime in Alberta: warm sunny days, endless skies of blue.
Then, without a warning, another winter storm comes raging through.
And the mercury's fallin'; I'm left all alone.
Just like springtime in Alberta chills me to the bone.

I can see the storm clouds comin'. Lord, they're dark across the sky.
The same look that I've seen so many times when I've looked into your eyes.
So I'll turn up my old collar, pull my hat way down low.
Wind's getting colder now dropping down to near zero. (Chorus)

Springtime in Alberta chills me to the bone.

[Recorded by Ian Tyson on "And Stood There Amazed," 1991.]
