Recorded by Hank Snow
[G]You threw the roses that I [C]brought you on the [G]floor
The tear drops [D7]burned as I walked out the [G]door
Then came the anger then the [G7]stranger then the [C]wine
That was the [G]first time I [D7]stepped over the [G]line
Living together yet a [C]million miles [G]apart
My conscience [D7]hurt but not as much as my [G]heart
Always searching just for [G7]someone who’d be [C]kind
Over and [G]over I [D7]stepped over the [G]line
Then one [D7]night I found an angel
And I [C]knew at last my heartaches were [G]through
And that’s the [D7]night I made my mind up
To say goo[A7]d-bye forever to [D7]you
[G]My joy grows deeper with my [C]new love day by [G]day
That other [D7]world seems so far far [G]away
The night I found her I found c[G7]ontentment and peace of [C]mind
And that’s the [G]last time I [D7]stepped over the [G]line[/chordpress]

– 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.
