"Alberta" as written by and Huddie Ledbetter....
Alberta, Alberta,
Where you been so long?
Alberta, Alberta,
Where you been so long?
Ain't had no loving
Since you've been gone.

Alberta, Alberta,
Where'd you stay last night?
Alberta, Alberta
Where'd you stay last night?
Come home this morning,
Clothes don't fit you right

Alberta, Alberta,
Girl, you're on my mind.
Alberta, Alberta,
Girl, you're on my mind.
Ain't had no loving
Such a great long time.

Alberta, Alberta,
Where you been so long?
Alberta, Alberta,
Where you been so long?
Ain't had no loving
Since you've been gone.

    General CommentThis has less to do with "SongMeanings.net", and more to do with feeling the pure and true blues that EC emits.

    General CommentHaha, I was listening to my iPod and the random playlist had about 4500 songs in it. This version of "Alberta" (apparently it is a traditiional, and Doc Watson did a popular version) by Eric Clapton was followed by "Alberta #2" by Bob Dylan, from Self-Portrait.

    This set of lyrics is pretty good. His girl leaves and returns either pregnant or otherwise significantly changed. She either leaves again, or it doesn't matter that she left because everything has been changed. Old blues songs are great about getting across a lot of information with very few words.
