"I'm Moving On" is a 1950 country standard written by Hank Snow. The song, a 12-bar blues, reached #1 on the Billboard country singles chart and stayed there for 21 weeks, tying the record. It was the first of seven number-one Billboard country hits Snow scored throughout his career on that chart.
The song has four bars of verse followed by eight bars of chorus with the final lines referring back to the verse:
That big eight-wheeler rollin' down the track
Means your true-lovin' daddy ain't comin' back
I'm movin' on, I'll soon be gone
You were flyin' too high for my little old sky so I'm movin' on
"I'm Moving On" is one of only three songs in the history of the Billboard country charts to spend 21 weeks at #1.
