Wabash Cannonball
Traditional Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Adapted By James Coffey


From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
From the green Ol' Smoky Mountains
To the south land by the shore
She's mighty tall and handsome
And she's known quite well by all
She's a regular combination on the Wabash Cannonball

Just listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
As we glide across the woodlands
Through the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engines
Hear those lonesome hoboes call
We're gliding through the jungles on the Wabash Cannonball

Now the eastern states are dandy, so the people always say
From New York to St. Louis with Chicago by the way
From the hills of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall
No changes can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball



Many thanks to James Coffey for sharing his adaptation of these traditional lyrics.
