Out from the wide Pacific to the broad Atlantic shore
She climbs flowery mountains over hills and by the shore
Although she's tall and handsome and known quite well by all
She's a regular combination of the Wabash Cannonball

Oh, the eastern states are dandy, so the western people say
Chicago, Rock Island, St. Louis by the way
To the lakes of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall
No changes can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball Oh, listen to the jingle The rumble and the roar As she glides along the woodlands Over hills and by the shore She climbs the flowery mountains Hear the lonesome hobo squall She glides along the woodlands The Wabash Cannonball [INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]

Oh, here's to Daddy Cleton, let his name forever be
And long be remembered in the ports of Tennessee
For he is a good old rounder till the curtain round him fall
He'll be carried back to victory on the Wabash Cannonball

I have rode the I.C. Limited, also the Royal Blue
Across the eastern countries on mail car number two
I have rode those highball trains from coast to coast that's all
But I have found no equal to the Wabash Cannonball Oh, Listen to the jingle The rumble and the roar As she glides along the woodlands Over hills and by the shore She climbs the flowery mountains Hear the merry hobo squall She glides along the woodlands The Wabash Cannonball
