Wabash cannonball

Fron the great Atlantic ocean ti the wide Pacific shore
From the queen of flowin' mountains to the south balls by the shore
She's mighty tall and handsome and known quit well by all
She's the combination of 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 hobo's squall
    You're traveling through the jungle on the Wabash cannonball

She came down from Birmingham on the Wabash cannonball
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

 * Refrain

Here's to Daddy Claxton, may his name forever stand
And always be remembered in the courts of Alabam
His earthly race is over and the curtains round him fall
We'll carry him home to victory on the Wabash cannonball
