Wabash Cannonball Lyrics
From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore

Climbs a glowing mountains to the Southbell by the shore

She's mighty tall and handsome and known quite well by all

She's a combination on the Wabash Cannonball

Now she came down from Birmingham one cold December day

As she pulled into the station you could hear all the people say

There's a gal from Tennessee she's long and she's tall

She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball

[ harmonica ]

Our eastern states are dandy so the people always say

From New York to St Louis and Chicago by the way

From the hills of Minnesotta where the wrippling waters fall

No changes can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball

Now here's to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand

Always be remembered in the ports throughout the land

His earthly race is over and the curtains round him fall

Carry him home to Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball

Now listen to the jingle the rumble and the roar

As she glides along the woodland through the hills and by the shore

Hear the mighty rush of the engine hear the lonesome hoboes call

Travelin' through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball
