Lyrics Wabash Cannonball

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
From the Queen of the flowing mountains
To the South Belle by the shore
She's mighty tall and handsome and known quite well by all
She's the combination on the Wabash cannonball
She came down from Birmingham one cold december day
As she rolled into the station
You could hear all the people say
There's a girl from Tennessee
She's long and she's tall
She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash cannonball
Their Eastern states are dandies so the people always say
From New York to Saint Louis and Chicago by the way
From the hills of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall
No changes can be taken on that Wabash cannonball
Here's to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand
And always be remembered 'round the courts of Alabam'
His earthly race is over and the curtains 'round him fall
We'll carry him home to victory on the Wabash cannonball
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 engines
Hear the lonesome hobo's squall
You're travelin' through the jungles on the Wabash cannonball
