Traditional - Wabash Cannon Ball guitar chord


I stood on the Atlantic Ocean


The wide Pacific shore


To the queen of the flowing mountains


To the southbell by the door

She's long and tall and handsome


And loved by one and all


She's a modern combination


Called the Wabash Cannonball

Oh listen to the jingle

The rumble and the roar

As she glides along the woodlands

Through the hills and by the shores

Hear the mighty rush of engines

Hear the lonsome hobos' call

We're travelling through the jungles

On the Wabash Cannonball

The eastern states are dandies

So the western people say

From New York to St. Louis

And Chicago by the way

Through the hills of Minnesota

Where the rippling waters fall

No chances can be taken

On the Wabash Cannonball

Here's to Daddy Klaxton

May his name forever stand

Will he be remembered

Through parts of all our land

His earthly race is over

And the curtain 'round him falls

We'll carry him on to victory

On the Wabash Cannonball
