The Cannonball


You can wash my jumper starch my overalls

Catch that train they call the Cannonball

From Buffalo to Washington


Yonder comes the train coming down the track

Carrying me away but it aint gonna carry me back

My honey babe my blue eyed babe


My baby left me she even took my shoes

Enough to give me the doggone worried blues

She's gone she's solid gone


I'm going up north I'm going up north this fall

If my luck don't change I wont be back at all

My honey babe I'm leaving you
