Recorded by Hank Snow
Written by Elmer Laird
[C]All your poison love has stained the life blood in my heart and [G7]soul dear
And I know my life will never be the [C]same
All my pleas and prayers have been in vain for you and you [G7]alone dear
And you know that you are guilty of the [C]shame
Into each life a love is born for one and one [G7]alone dear
The love I chose was surely not for [C]me
All your poison love has stained the life blood in my heart and [G7]soul dear
And I know our love was never meant to [C]be
But still my heart cries out for you and you alone my [G7]darling
And fate will never ever let me [C]go
All my pleas and prayers have been in vain for you and you alone [G7]dear
And my better judgment tells me to say [C]no

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.
