Recorded by Hank Snow
Written by Cy Coben
[G]Now if you’re gonna cruise be sure that you’ll choose [D7]Havana
Where the waters are green by that old Caribbean [G]sea
And if you stay there awhile you’ll soon like their style of [D7]rhythm
You’ll learn the Cuba Rhumba the dance that[G] everyone does
And when you [C]dance with the sweet senorita you meet in the [G]moonlight
You’ll [A7]forget where you’re from and never wanna come [D7]home
And in a [G]tropical way you’ll learn how to say [D7]manana
And the Cuba Rhumba will have you under its [G]spell
If you and your Spanish guitars play out under the stars in [D7]Cuba
While the dancers are swayin’ as long as I’m playin’ [G]tune
And if you’re tappin’ your feet to the beat of that native [D7]music
Then the Cuba Rhumba has got you under its [G]spell
Neath the [C]tropical sky you’ll be tryin’ to step to the [G]rhythm
And you’ll [A7]shout all day in the way the natives all [D7]do
And then you’ll [G]walk in a trance and just wanna dance to [D7]Rhumba
Yes the Cuba Rhumba will have you under its [G]spell[/chordpress]

Who is Hank Snow?
– Clarence Eugene “Hank” Snow (May 9, 1914 – December 20, 1999) was a Canadian-American country music artist. Most popular in the 1950s, he had a career that spanned more than 50 years, he recorded 140 albums and charted more than 85 singles on the Billboard country charts from 1950 until 1980. His number-one hits include the self-penned songs “I’m Moving On”, “The Golden Rocket” and “The Rhumba Boogie” and famous versions of “I Don’t Hurt Anymore”, “Let Me Go, Lover!”, “I’ve Been Everywhere”, “Hello Love”, as well as other top 10 hits.Snow was an accomplished songwriter whose clear, baritone voice expressed a wide range of emotions including the joys of freedom and travel as well as the anguish of tortured love. His music was rooted in his beginnings in small-town Nova Scotia where, as a frail, 80-pound youngster, he endured extreme poverty, beatings and psychological abuse as well as physically punishing labour during the Great Depression. Through it all, his musically talented mother provided the emotional support he needed to pursue his dream of becoming a famous entertainer like his idol, the country star, Jimmie Rodgers.As a performer of traditional country music, Snow won numerous awards and is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. The Hank Snow Museum in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, celebrates his life and work in a province where his fans still see him as an inspirational figure who triumphed over personal adversity to become one of the most influential artists in all of country music.
