Hank Locklin

Hank Locklin - Wabash Cannonball

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore

From the queen of glowin' mountains to the south hills by the shore

She's mighty tall and handsome and known quite well by all

She's a 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.

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.

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 hobo's call

You're travlin' through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball...
