    Lyrics

    (Roy Carter)

    From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
    From the queen of flowing mountains to the southbells by the moor
    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 pulled 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.

    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 hoboe's call
    Trav'ling through the Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball.

    --- Instrumental ---

    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.

    So here's to daddy Claxton may his name forever stand
    And always be remembered in the ports of Alabam
    His earthly race is over and the curtains round him fall
    We'll carry him home to Victory on the Wabash Cannonball.

    Now 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 hoboe's call
    Trav'ling through the Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball...
