Earl Scruggs — Wabash Cannonball lyrics

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
Green old flowing mountains to the southbell by the shore
Mighty tall and handsome and known quite well by all
She's a combination on the Wabash Cannonball
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/earl-scruggs-wabash-cannonball-lyrics.html ]
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

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 Minnesota, where the rippling waters fall
No changes can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball

Now listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
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

Songwriters: CARTER, A.P.
