lyrics

Skipping rocks down by the river
Young and proud I was taught by my sister
Mama called us in before the sun would set
My first time jumping in I was scared
The water was cold and I just did my hair
But Johnny held my hand and I knew it would be love

We are the youth, the Alberta youth
Kickin’ up dust and swallowin’ the truth
No one ever gets left behind
Sneakin’ sips of grandpa’s cheap wine
The smell of pine and campfire smoke
Long road trips and coming back home
Clouds scatter the softest shade of blue
Alberta Youth

We’d hear the train come rollin’ through
Every night like its supposed to
The rumble and the whistle could rock me right to sleep
We were planning our days as the crow would fly
Too young and dumb to wake up and realize
Our reckless days were numbered and wearing thin

We are the youth, the Alberta youth
Kickin’ up dust and swallowin’ the truth
No one ever gets left behind
Sneakin’ sips of grandpa’s cheap wine
The smell of pine and campfire smoke
Long road trips and coming back home
Clouds scatter the softest shade of blue
Alberta Youth

Annie’s in school, she’ll be leaving this fall
My sister tied the knot, her baby’s starting to crall
Seems like yesterday mama was callin’ us in
And Johnny built the house of my dreams from the ground
We used to play in his tree house high above the town
Forever rooted in where we were born and raise

We are the youth, the Alberta youth
Kickin’ up dust and swallowin’ the truth
No one ever gets left behind
Sneakin’ sips of grandpa’s cheap wine
The smell of pine and campfire smoke
Long road trips and coming back home
Clouds scatter the softest shade of blue
Alberta Youth
