Billy Walker

Billy Walker - Wabash Cannonball

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...
