Wabash Cannonball

1929 Carter Family Version

Native Key: G

Intro (play through the chords for one verse)

 GC
 Out from the wide Pacific to the broad Atlantic shore
 DD7G
She climbs the flowery mountains, o'er hills and by the shore
 GC
 Although she's tall and handsome and she's known quite well by all
 DG
She's a regular combination, of the Wabash Cannonball.

 GC
 Oh the Eastern states are dandy, so the Western people say
 DD7G
Chicago, Rock Island, St. Louis by the way
 GG7C
 To the lakes of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall
 DD7G
No chances to be taken on the Wabash Cannonball.

Chorus:
 GG7C
 Oh, listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
 DD7G
As she glides along the woodland, o'er hills and by the shore
 GG7C
 She climbs the flowery mountains, hear the merry hoboscall
 DD7G
She glides along the woodland, the Wabash Cannonball.

Break (same as intro)

 GC
 Oh, here's old daddy Cleaton, let his name forever be
 DD7G
 And long be remembered in the courts of Tennessee
 GG7C
 For he is a good old rounder 'til the curtain round him fall
 DD7G
 He'll be carried back to victory on the Wabash Cannonball.

 GC
 I have rode the I.C. Limited, also the Royal Blue
 DD7G
Across the Eastern countries on Elkhorn Number Two
 GG7C
 I have rode those highball trains from coast to coast that's all
 DD7G
But I have found no equal to the Wabash Cannonball.

Chorus

Break
