Wabash Cannonball (Larry W Jones 07/20/2014) (song#6946)

She rolls as fast as a cannonball
On rails of steel she’s a pretty sight
Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
As she rolls on through a summer night

Two long steel rails and a million crossties hear her mighty call
Gents, ladies and express mail flies on the Wabash Cannonball

(instrumental)

She rolls as fast as a cannonball
On rails of steel she’s a pretty sight
Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
As she rolls on through a summer night

The hand of the engineer has the throttle full to the wall
There’s no fear as he rounds the curve on the Wabash Cannonball

Her lonesome horn is a sound I love
Coming from the Wabash Cannonball
