Wabash Cannonball (Listen to midi)

 

                       D                                                             G

1. From the great Atlantic Ocean to the wide Pacific shores,

                   A                                                     A7                          D

    to the queen of flowin` mountains, and the south belle by the shore.

                                                                                                          G

    She's mighty tall and handsome, and she's known quite well by all,

      A                                                                A7                      D

    she came down from Birmingham on the Wabash Cannonball.

 

                 D                                                               G

Well, now listen to the jingle, to the rumble and the roar,

                A                                                    A7                      D

as she glides along the woodlands, to the hills and by the shore.

                                                                                                        G

Hear the mighty rush of the engine, and the lonesome hobo squall,

        A                                            A7                     D

no chances can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball.

 

                D                                                                          G

2. Now, here's to Daddy Claxton, may his name forever stand ,

             A                                              A7                               D

    and always be remembered in the courts throughout the land.

                                                                                       G

    His earthly grace is over and the curtain round him falls,

              A                                               A7                      D

    we'll carry him home to glory on the Wabash Cannonball.
