Thread Name: Lyr Req: Streamlined Cannonball (Roy Acuff)
Subject: Streamlined cannonball
Back in the 50's, someone (I think maybe a duet act - maybe the Davis sisters) recorded a song that I believe was entitled "Streamlined Cannonball" The first verse (I think) goes:

"A long steel rail, a short cross tie I'm on my way back home the blinds I ride - the life that I love is home sweet home to me"

Can anyone help? Thanks, Tom
