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 highways 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 engines Where pickers and gone cowboys go Where there's rhinestones and a stage like the Opry And the Southern Lights lite up the show 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 Just a pickin and a grinnin playin along As song by Bolger Loopen Words & Music Paul Henry Dallaire Paul Henry Pub.SOCAN www.johnnycashsong.com www.youtube.com
