Billy Walker — Wabash Cannonball lyrics

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
From the queen of flowing mountains to the southbells by the moor
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 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
Listen to the jingle the rumble and the roar
As she glides along the woodlands through the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engine hear that lonesome hoboe's call
Trav'ling through the Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball
[ dobro ]
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
So here's to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand
And always be remembered in the ports of Alabam
His earthly race is over and the curtains round him fall
We'll carry him home to Victory on the Wabash Cannonball
Now listen to the jingle...
