Thread Name: OBIT: Hank Snow Passes
Subject: RE: Hank Snow Passes
I can't do anything but echo what everyone else is saying--he was a singer/songwriter/guitarist before it was cool, and he could really rock!!

For all our Australian mates, he told the story that his biggest hit, "I've Been Everywhere" was sent to him by an Australian, the cities and towns were all Australian--he wrote told the writer that he loved the song, but his American audiences wouldn't recognize any of the names in it--the writer apparently got out his US map and repopulated the song with American names--

So my question is--does anyone have the original lyrics, and did anyone every record them?
