Wabash Cannonball

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
From Greenland’s icy mountain to the southland by the shore
She’s from Tennessee, boy, she’s long and she’s tall
She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball.

Yeah, listen to the jingle, hear the rumble and the roar
As she glides along the woodland, o’er the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engine, hear the lonesome hobos squall
She’s traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball

Now 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 girl from Tennessee, boy, she’s long and she’s tall
She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball.

Yeah, listen to the jingle, hear the rumble and the roar
As she glides along the woodland, o'er the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engine, hear the lonesome hobos squall
She’s traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball

Now here's to Daddy Claxton, let his name forever stand
And always be remembered in the courts throughout the land
When his earthly race is over and the curtain around him falls
Going to bring him home to victory on that Wabash Cannonball.

Yeah, listen to the jingle, hear the rumble and the roar
As she glides along the woodland, o'er the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engine, hear the lonesome hobos squall
She’s traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball
She’s traveling through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball
