If heartaches brought fame in love's crazy game I'd be a legend in my time If they gave gold statues for tears and regrets I'd be a legend in my time But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame For a heart that's been broken over love that's in vain If loneliness meant world acclaim then everyone would know my name I'd be a legend in my time [ vibes - guitar ] But they don't give ...
I left out of Tucson with no destination in mind I was running from trouble and the jail term the judge had in mind And the border meant freedom a new life and romance And that's why I thought I should go To start my lifes over on the seashores of Old Mexico My first night in Juarez I lost all the money I had One bad senorita made use of one innocent lad But I must keep on runnin' it's too lat...
I took you home from a party and we kissed in fun A few stolen kisses and no harm was done Instead of stopping when we could, we went right on 'Til suddenly we found that the brakes were gone You belong to someone else and I do too It's just crazy bein' here with you Like a bad motorcycle with the devil in the seat Goin' ninety miles an hour down a dead end street I didn't want to want you but...
Recorded by Hank Snow He remembers the first time he met her He remembered the first thing she said He remembered the first time he held her And the night that she came to his bed He remembers her sweet way of sayin' Honey has something gone wrong He remembered the fun and the teasin' And the reason he wrote her this song CHORUS I'll give you a daisy a day dear I'll give you a daisy a day I'll...
Written by E. Johnson Recorded by Hank Snow A good gal is hard to find You always get the other kind And when you think you've got the best in the land You look around and see her flirtin' with some other man And then you rave and then you crave To see her lyin' in her grave So guys be wise, take my good advice Hug her every mornin', kiss her every night Give her lots of lovin', man, and treat...
Dear Santa Claus, It's been so long So long since I have written Since as a kid in happy house I dwelled I've moved from there and now I live On disillusion avenue And I've been here longer than I care to tell The twinkling bells of hope and joy The laughter that rang in my voice Have silenced more and more as time goes by Those treasured gifts from other years Are tarnished, lost or stained w...
A Mother wrote a letter asking how much longer must I wait Before you send my boy back home to me For my eyes are growing dim and I'm longing for my Jim Please hurry up and let my boy go free. The warden read the letter and a tear fell from his eye Sitting down he wrote her this reply There's a little box of pine on the 7:29 bringing back a lost sheep to the fold There's a valley filled with t...
Written and Recorded by Hank Snow The lights were burning low and Mister Midnight made his way. Old Father TIme had trudged along to close another day. The old clock ticked and seemed to say: Your heart is sad and blue, But just rememeber, pal, there's others broken, too; I told the moon it was so hard to play love's losing hand. When you thought you drew a sweetheart, she was just a fickle fr...
Recorded by Hank Snow If I had a scale to measure love Like a clock can measure time And we put our love upon that scale Would your's weigh as much as mine Of late is seems your thoughts are far away I doubt if you hear half the things I say I be hurt if I knew who you were thinkin' of I'm so glad there's no scale to measure love Your kisses always thrilled me at the start But now I wonder are...
The world's a stage they say and we're all part of the play And you were only acting when we met You played the lover well so how could I foretell That you would find another and forget Act one our vows of love were spoken Act two we were happy as could be Act three our vow was broken The play is ended dow the curtain drops for me [ steel - guitar ] It's really very cruel finding out I played ...
I waited each day for your letter although I knew what it would cost But dear when it came I knew that your game Had been won and I knew that I had lost But I just couldn't open your letter I know you're no longer my own The moment it came I wrote beneath my name These heart-breaking words address unknown [ piano ] I wanted to open your letter to see if you missed me sometimes But you have a w...
Adios amigo adios my friend The road we have traveled has come to an end When two love the same love one love has to lose And it's you who she longs for it's you she will choose Adios compadre what must be must be Remember to name one muchacho for me I ride to the Rio where my life I will spend Adios amigo adios my friend [ guitar ] Adios compadre let us shed no tears May all your mananas brin...
Recorded by Hank Snow Another cryin' night will soon be over now The morning light won't help, I'll still be blue 'Cause everywhere I turn there's only loneliness Memories are all I can hold to Memories are the moments when we were as one Memories you would only hope to find Memories, in your loving arms, you'd whisper my name Then I would feel your burning limbs on mine All these memories are...

There's nothing left for me Of days that used to be I live in memory Among my souvenirs Some letters tied with blue A photograph or two I see a rose from you Among my souvenirs A few more token rest Within my treasure chest And though they do their best To give me consolation I count them all apart And as the teardrops start I find a broken heart Among my souvenirs I count them all apart And a...

I'm writing this answer to the Galveston Rose The answer to a sad, broken heart My whole world, it crumbled when I read your last note Saying, that we forever must part Oh, I realize now you were innocent, dear When in anger I said we were through For as all the long years have passed slowly away I find that I'll always love you There were tears on your cheeks when I bid you goodbye And you pl...
Any old time, you want to come back home Drop me a line, and say no more you'll roam You had your chance to play the game fair When you left me, sweetheart You only left a load of care Now that you're down I'm going to stick by you If you will only say Your roamin' days are thru Well, now, you'll find me here Like the day you left me alone Any old time You want to come back home Repeat all
I talked with a stranger so sad and forlorn His garments were sack cloth all tattered and town He told me a story of sorrow and woe His heart went to heaven at the first fall of snow He spoke of his angel a dear baby girl He loved every footstep he loved every curl But she went to heaven just one year ago The angels came for her at the first fall of snow He still have the dolly that she used t...
I've traveled this whole world over and now I'm goin' down to the rainbow's end From twilight till dawn trudging on and on on my way to the rainbow's end I'm weary and tired but I don't care I'm goin' down to the rainbow's end No friends no home just travelin' alone I'm on my way to the rainbow's end They say there are treasures of silver and gold burried down by the rainbow's end But the trea...

I took a contract to bury the body of blasphemous Bill MacKie Whenever wherever or whatsoever the manner of death he die Whether he die in the light o' day or under the peak-faced moon In cabin or dance-hall camp or dive mucklucks or patent shoon On velvet tundra or virgin peak by glacier drift or draw In muskeg hollow or canyon gloom by avalanche fang or claw By battle murder or sudden wealth...
Now wouldn't you expect to find a man an awful crank That's staked out nigh three hundred claims and every one a blank That's followed every fool stampede and seen the rise and fall Of camps where men got gold in chunks and he got none at all That's prospected a bit of ground and sold it for a song To see it yield a fortune to some fool that came along That's sunk a dozen bed-rock holes and no...
This is the tale that was told to me by the man with the crystal eye As I smoked my pipe in the camp-fire light and the Glories swept the sky As the Northlights gleamed and curved and streamed and the bottle of hooch was dry A man once aimed that my life be shamed and wrought me a deathly wrong I vowed one day I would well repay but the heft of his hate was strong He thonged me East and he tho...

You're mine for awhile till a new face appears And then you're no longer with me They call me a fool and laugh at my tears For they know I'll never be free Between fire and water that's where you got me I get burned every time I'm with you Between fire and water I cry an ocean Cause without you I'm bluer than blue My love cannot die if you break my heart I'll want you the rest of my days I try...

Oh them big wheels a-turnin', goin' somewhere And they're carryin' her away from my side Yes I cried, thought I died Love was just a game to me, I thought I'd never cry I thought she'd be the loser, but standing here am I And that long train is rolling, goin' somewhere And it's carryin' her away from my side Yes I cried, thought I'd die A broken heart is somethin' that I have never had But I l...
I loved and laughed and had my fun and went on to someone new And tonight at last the game is done and the bill is falling due I took your love you gave me all I gave nothing back to you And tonight I found that I must pay and the bill is falling due Now I think I know how much I owe maybe more than I can pay But the debt is mine no use to whine but there is no other way The dawn will soon be ...
They heard the breeze in the trees making weird melodies And they made that the start of the blues And from a jail came the wail of a down-hearted frail And they played that as part of the blues From a whippoorwill high on a hill they took a new note Pushed it through a horn till it was worn into a blue note And then they nursed it and rehearsed it and gave out with the news That the southland...
I gave my dog to Uncle Sam in 1943 He sailed across the sea And died for Liberty. Now that you are sending heroes home I just don't understand Why don't you send my dog home, Uncle Sam? He'd sleep beneath Old Glory Right here on Daddy's farm. I'd be close by To keep him from all harm. It's true no more he'll lead me Like he did in days of yore. He'll never be A blind boy's pal no more. No one ...

There are flow'rs that are rich, there are flow'rs that are rare On the banks where the bright water flows, But the sweetest of all nature's flowers to bloom Was my darling the Blue River Rose.

In the bright month ...

Here I am with you, in a world of blue, While we're dancing to the tan-go we loved when first we met. While the music plays, I recall the days, When our love was a turn that we couldn't soon forget.

My ship set sail to Bluebird Island And slowly drifted out to sea Her silver sails to cross the ocean My lover's lonely heart set free Then out across the waves the bluebirds came one day Out over the silver sea, your message brought to me To sail my ship of love along the moonlit bay And anchor in the harbor of your heart The Trade Winds there on Bluebird Island Soon dried her lonely tears aw...
