    Lyrics

    (Roy Acuff)

    (It's the Streamlined Cannonball.)

    A long steel rail and a short crosstie
    I'm on my way back home
    I'm on the train the king of them all
    The Streamlined Cannonball.

    For she glides along like a cannonball
    Like a star on it's heavenly flight
    This lonesome sound of the whistle you love
    As she travels through the night.

    Her headlight gleams out into the night
    Her firebox flash you see
    The blinds I ride and the lights I love
    Are home, sweet home to me.

    For she glides along like a cannonball
    Like a star on it's heavenly flight
    This lonesome sound of the whistle you love
    As she travels through the night.

    (The lonesome sound of the whistle you love
    It's the Streamlined Cannonball.)

    I can see the smile of an engineer
    Although he's old and gray
    A contented heart he awaits back home
    Of the Streamlined Cannonball.

    For she glides along like a cannonball
    Like a star on it's heavenly flight
    This lonesome sound of the whistle you love
    As she travels through the night...
