Roy Acuff – Wabash Cannonball Lyrics

From the great atlantic ocean to the wide pacific shore

From the queen of flowing mountains to the southbell by the shore

She’s mighty tall and handsome and known quite well by all

She’s a 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 girl from tennessee, she’s long and she’s tall

She came down from birmingham on the wabash cannonball”

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 minnesota where the rippling waters fall

No changes can be taken on the wabash cannonball

Here’s to daddy claxton may his name forever stand

And always be remembered round the courts of alabam

His earthly race is over and the curtains round him fall

We’ll carry home to victory on the wabash cannonball

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 call

You’re travelin’ through the jungle on the wabash cannonball
