[C]Well poor little Jimmy was a [F]real cool kid
He [C]had all the girls a flipping their [G7]lids
Well he [F]parked in the dark neath the [G7]great big moon [C]above [G7]
Then he [C]met a little girl and he [F]took her for a ride
She [C]turned on her charm and [G7]Jimmy tried and tried
To [F]fight off you but he just [G7]couldn’t win against [C]love
[F]Poor little Jimmy’s [G7]done gone and done
He [F]tried to out run love but he [C]couldn’t out run her
He [G7]tried to out do cupid but [C]cupid out done him
Yes [F]poor little Jimmy done[G7] gone and fell in[C] love
Now she said little Jimmy why [F]don’t we go steady
He [C]said I’m sorry but I ain’t qu[G7]ite ready
To settle [F]down cause I’v[G7]e gotta lot of living t[C]o d[G7]o
Then she [C]snuggled up closer and [F]breathed a sigh

Well [C]he used to be king till the [F]queen stepped in
His [C]troubles began along [G7]about then
Now [F]she’s showing poo[G7]r little Jimmy a thing o[C]r two

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.
