Wabash Cannonball Lyrics - Arlo Guthrie

Public Domain 


I stood on the Atlantic Ocean 

The wide Pacific shore 

To the queen of the flowing mountains 

To the southbell by the door 

She's long and tall and handsome 

And loved by one and all 

She's a modern combination 

Called the Wabash Cannonball 



Oh listen to the jingle 

The rumble and the roar 

As she glides along the woodlands 

Through the hills and by the shores 

Hear the mighty rush of engines 

Hear the lonsome hobos' call 

We're travelling through the jungles 

On the Wabash Cannonball 


The eastern states are dandies 

So the western people say 

From New York to St. Louis 

And Chicago by the way 

Through the hills of Minnesota 

Where the rippling waters fall 

No chances can be taken 

On the Wabash Cannonball 




Here's to Daddy Klaxton 

May his name forever stand 

Will he be remembered 

Through parts of all our land 

His earthly race is over 

And the curtain 'round him falls 

We'll carry him on to victory 

On the Wabash Cannonball
