Ernest Tubb - Wabash Cannonball lyrics

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore

From the queen of flowing mountains for the hills and 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

[ steel ]

Our eastern states are dandy so all the people 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 that Wabash Cannonball

Here's to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand

And always be remembered round the ports of Alabam

His earthly race is over and the curtains round him fall

We'll carry him home to Vict'ry on the Wabash Cannonball

[ guitar ]

Now 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 engine hear those lonesome hoboes call

You're trav'ling through the jungles on the Wabash Cannonball
