[Verse 1]
         E
From the great Atlantic ocean
                    A
To the wide Pacific shore
       B
To the queen of flowing mountains
                         E
For the hills and by the shore
      E
She's mighty tall and handsome
                              A
And she's known quite well by all
B
She came down from Birmingham
                     E
On the Wabash Cannonball
 
 
[Chorus]
         E
Well now listen to the jingle
                      A
To the rumble and the roar
       B
As she glides along the woodland
                             E
Through the hills and by the shore
         E
Hear the mighty rush of the engine
                        A
And the lonesome hoboes call
   B
No changes can be taken
                     E
On the Wabash Cannonball

[Verse 2]
    E
Now here's to daddy Claxton
                     A
May his name forever stand
    B
And always be remembered
                            E
In the ports throughout the land
    E
His earthly race is over
                          A
And the curtain round him falls
      B
We'll carry him home to Glory
                     E
On the Wabash Cannonball
 
 
[Chorus]
         E
Well now listen to the jingle
                      A
To the rumble and the roar
       B
As she glides along the woodland
                             E
Through the hills and by the shore
         E
Hear the mighty rush of the engine
                        A
And the lonesome hoboes call
   B
No changes can be taken
                     E
On the Wabash Cannonball
 
 
[Interlude]
| E | E | E | A | | B | B7 | B | E | | E | E | E | A | | B | B7 | B | E | [Chorus] E Well now listen to the jingle A To the rumble and the roar B As she glides along the woodland E Through the hills and by the shore E Hear the mighty rush of the engine A And the lonesome hoboes call B No changes can be taken E On the Wabash Cannonball
