Written and Recorded by Hank Snow
[G]You broke the [D7]chain that held our [G]hearts
Each [C]link of love you wasted [G]too
You [C]told our friends each one you [G]met darlin’
That I [D7]had turned my back on [G]you
You broke the [D7]chain that held our [G]hearts
And [C]tied it to another [G]love
You [C]left your lonesome daddy [G]here darlin’
To pine [D7]beneath the stars [G]above
That same [D7]old moon is shining [G]down
Up[C]on the place we used to [G]be
He [C]seems to know that you were [G]wrong darlin’
And you [D7]should drift on back to [G]me
A rose [D7]entwined in hair of [G]gold
A [C]twinkle in two eyes of [G]blue
A [C]heart that once beat just for [G]me darlin’
Are only [D7]memories now of [G]you
They say your [D7]new love treats you [G]fine
And [C]you were never meant for [G]me
But [C]if perchance that new love fails you’ll [G]find me
Still waiting [D7]where you set me [G]free

Who is Hank Snow?

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 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.
