Hank Snow: Snow on the Tracks


Of the 840 commercial recordings Hank Snow made between 1936 and 1984, admittedly few are train songs. But thanks to his career-making 1950 hits I’m Moving On and The Golden Rocket, the Nova Scotia-born country singer will always be associated with railroads and ‘traveling’ songs. To be sure, Snow spent much of his life on the move. About a third of the songs he wrote and recorded during the thirties mentioned railroading
