Snow: "That big eight-wheeler rollin' round
the track/Means your true lovin' daddy ain't coming back/I'm movin' on."
Hank Snow, the original Rhinestone Cowboy, died on December 20, 1999, at
85. His career began in 1934 when he got his first local radio program
in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He sold more than 70 million records and had six
songs at number one on the best-seller list including "I'm Movin' On",
quoted above, which is the Billboard all time number one song. Snow entered
the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1978 and was a member of the Grand Ole
Opry cast for nearly 50 years. There are thousands of Hank Snow pages on
the Internet. The Nashville Songwriters Foundation (which runs the Hall
of Fame) has a page at http://vhost.telalink.net/~nsf/snow.html,
and lyrics to his more famous songs are at a site named Cow Pie at http://www.roughstock.com/cowpie/songs/songs.html/s/snow_hank.
