[C]I could never be [G7]lonely I could never be [C]blue
As I [F]go through life if [C]only I’d [D7]have my guitar and [G7]you
[C]Why should I ever [G7]worry why should I feel [C]sad
We [F]travel along in a [C]hurry [D7]sharing the good and the [G7]bad
[C]Whenever I’m up you’re [G7]near me giving me happi[C]ness
And [F]when I’m down you [C]cheer me [D7]nothing is better than [G7]this
[C]Here we go [F]just we three oh [C]how happy [G7]we will be
[C]I’ll hook my ladder to a [F]silver star
[C]Climb with you and my [G7]old gui[C]tar
Over the land we [G7]wander first here and [C]there
But [F]I never stop to [C]ponder if the [D7]clouds are dark or [G7]fair
In a [C]one horse town or [G7]city no matter where we [C]are
I’m [F]happy if I [C]have with me [D7]you and my old [G7]guitar
We’ll [C]travel the roads [G7]together leading to lands [C]afar
[F]Singing in all kinds of [C]weather and [D7]strumming my [G7]old gui[C]tar

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.
