"Wabash Cannonball" lyrics

Wabash Cannonball

From the great Atlantic ocean
To the wide Pacific shore
She climbs a flowery mountains
Over the hills and by the shore

She's mighty tall and handsome
She's known quite well by all
She's a regular combination
On the Wabash Cannonball

Listen to the jingle
The rumble and the roar
As she glides along the woodland
Over the hills and by the shore

Hear the mighty rush of the engine
Hear those lonesome hoboes call
Traveling through the jungle
On the Wabash Cannonball

Well, she came down from Birmingham
One cold December day
As she pulled into the station
You could hear all the people say

She's from Tennessee
She's long and she's tall
She came down from Birmingham
On the Wabash Cannonball

Listen to the jingle
The rumble and the roar
As she glides along the woodland
Over the hills and by the shore

Hear the mighty rush of the engine
Hear those lonesome hoboes call
Traveling through the jungle
On the Wabash Cannonball

Here's to Daddy Claxton
May his name forever stand
And always be remembered
In the courts throughout the land

His earthly race is over
And the curtains round him fall
We'll carry him home to Dixie
On the Wabash Cannonball

Listen to the jingle
The rumble and the roar
As she glides along the woodland
Over the hills and by the shore

Hear the mighty rush of the engine
Hear those lonesome hoboes call
Traveling through the jungle
On the Wabash Cannonball
