Roy Acuff - Wabash Cannonball

Roy Acuff

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore

From the queen of flowing mountain to the south bell by the shore

She mighty tall and handsome and know quite well by all

She’s a combination on the Wabash Cannonball

She came down from Birmingham one cold December day

As she rolled in the station you could hear all the people say

There is a girl form Tennessee she long and she tall

She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball

Our the western states are dandies so the people all ways say

From New York to St. Louis and Chicago by the way

From the hills of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall

No changes to be taken on the Wabash Cannonball

Here’s to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand

And always be remembered in the courts of Alabam

His earthly race is over and as the curtain around him fall

We'll carry him Home in victory on the Wabash cannon ball

Listen to the jingle the rumble and the roar

As she glides along the woodland through the hills and by the shore

hear the rush of the mighty engine hear the lonesome hobos call

You’re traveling through the jungle on the Wabash cannon ball
