From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore

From the queen of flowing mountains to the south bells by the shore

She's mighty tall and handsome she's 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 gal from Tennessee she's long and she's tall

She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball

[ dobro ]

Our eastern states're 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 the Wabash Cannonball

So here's to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand

And always be remembered in the ports throughout the land

His earthly race is over the curtains round him fall

We'll carry him home to Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball

[ guitar ]

So 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 the lonesome hoboes squall

Traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball

You're traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball
