Written and Recorded by Hank Snow
[C]A cowboy with his sweetheart stood [F]beneath a starlit [C]sky
[F]Tomorrow he was [C]leaving for the [D7]lonesome prairie [G7]wide
[C]She said I’ll be your loving bride when [F]you return some[C]day
[F]He handed her a [C]broken ring and [G7]to her he did [C]say
You’ll find upon that ring sweetheart my [F]name engraved in [C]gold
[F]And I shall keep the [C]other half which [G7]bears your name you [C]know
Three years have passed he did not come and [F]Nell will wed [C]tonight
[F]Her father said an [C]Earl would make [D7]her happy home so [G7]bright
[C]The lights were gaily glowing as they [F]stood there side by [C]side
[F]Let’s drink a toast to [C]this young man and [G7]to his lovely [C]bride
Just then there stood within the door a [F]figure tall and [C]slim
[F]A handsome cowboy [C]was their guest and [D7]slowly he walked [G7]in
[C]I’ll drink with you a toast said he and [F]quickly in her [C]glass
[F]He dropped a half of [C]wedding ring then [G7]anxiously he [C]watched
She tipped her glass and from her lips a [F]ring fell shining [C]bright
[F]The token she had [C]longed to see lay [D7]there beneath the [G7]light
[C]Though years have been between us dear [F]love won our last long [C]fight
[F]It’s you my cowboy [C]sweetheart and my [G7]Jack I’ll wed to[C]night[/chordpress]

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.
