I took my Mom to see Hank Snow in 1989. She had seen him quite a few times in concert, but I hadn't. It was his last tour into Canada. I really enjoyed that show. I grew up listening to his songs being played first on 78's then on LP's. And of course, Mom singing them to me. I have most all his spngs, and I also live with the memories of Mom singing to me. Both are very precious memories of mine.

Hi David, Thank you for signing our guestbook. Hanks music was great for sure. That was all that played in my household on the turntable or 8 track machine. I recognize the Thorburne name (same as my son)who I believe is a relative of yours, Claude & Thelma are his grandparents. Donna

Being born and raised in Liverpool Nova Scotia, I attended school in Liverpool. I can remember Hank Snow with his horse entertaining us school kids after school prior to his program that evening in the local ball park. Jimmy Snow also was a student, however, I remember very little about Jimmy other than us kids thought he was special being the son of Hank Snow. Hank Snow's memory will always be with me. I still play his music whenever I get the chance. Hank's name will live on.

I have always enjoyed Hank's singing, and we lived in Newfoundland Canada for nine years on 3 different tours while I was in the US Air Force. That is when we heard his "Squid Jiggin' Ground" song, a typical Newfoundland Folk Song, we loved that, have a Newfoundland Music CD with that on it. Also especially enjoy "I've Been Everywhere", besides all his other good songs. what a great entertainer, Thanks Hank, Carson Harris and Family.

I really had the experience of a lifetime and felt very honoured to hear Hank perform at the Rebecca Cohn in Halifax. He played there several times and I'm so happy to have been witness to his contribution to the Best country music ever! Thanks Hank!

Blue Rodeo The Hank Snow Song There's a man a legend I know A poet and writer of songs Born in brooklyn Nova Scotia A true blue Canadian boy He sang of love's lost hiways His big hit was called "Movin On" It's Hank Snow the Singin Ranger Liverpool's own pride and joy Chorus: Now there must be a place up in heaven Where the sidewalks are all paved with gold Boxcars and old silver engine Where pickers and gone cowboys go Where there's rhinestones and a stage like the Opry And the Northern Lights lite up the show Just to see Hank sing in God's choir In a star studded blue rodeo Verse; Now Hank and his Rainbow Ranch Boys Picked his flat-top like nobody could He captured the heart of the American Dream And yes sir he's been everywhere Now each time I sing and play my guitar And delightfully so for the crowd I'll belt out "My Old Nova Scotia Home" And somehow I can see Hank standin beside me pickin and a grinnin just playing along Paul Henry Dallaire Paul Henry Pub.

In the early 1940s, probably 1941, my future wife and I saw Hank Snow, 'The Yodeling Ranger' at Enterprise Hall in Barrington, Nova Scotia. He wasn't so well-known then. The tickets cost twenty-five cents. I don't think he had recorded his famous I'm Movin' On at that time. Later, in Korea in 1950/51, the Armed Forces Network played that song everyday at noon.

In 1991 or 1992 I sent a letter to Hank asking if I could meet with him when I came to Nashville. He sent a letter back to me explaining how to go about meeting him at the Grand Ole Opry. When we got to the Grand Ole Opry, for some reason we did not get to meet him. When I got back to California I wrote him a letter expressing my disapointment. Several days later Hank called me at my office and apoligized.

When I was a young boy we bought our first record player, and had one Hank Snow LP that we played over and over again. We got hours of enjoyment from this LP, and we learned the words to every song. I still enjoy listening to his songs that get played regularly on Galaxie Country Classics. I recently heard him sing "Till The End Of Time", and would like to get the words if anyone has them.

I first heard Hank Snow on a radio show from Philadelphia, hosted by a well know Philly personality, Sally Starr. Later on I saw him in person around 1949 in Baltimore MD., On a show headlined by Ernest Tubb. Hank sang I'm movin on and brought down the house. I think his style was one of the most unique of any country artist. I folowed his career for fifty years and his music is still fresh today. Last time I saw him in person was at the Grande ole opry. He still could bring down the house

I have enjoyed the music of this legend since I was a boy, just great, songs that tell a story. Although he is gone his music still lives on.

My fellow Medical Students at the Medical College of Georgia were fast fans of Hank Snow from 1960 until the present.We learned the words and sang along with his records which were all in our library.He has offered much pleasure and philosophy throughout his exciting career. We delighted when he was on the Grand Old Opry and disappointed with the broadcast if he did not appear. Best wishes to him and his family. Jack
