    WABASHCANNONBALL

    She came down from Birmingham one cold December day,

    As she pulled into the station, you could hear all the people say:

    Theres a gal from Minnesota, shes long and shes tall.

    Shes the combination called the Wabash Cannonball.

    Chorus:

    Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar

    As she glides along the southland, through hills and by the shore.

    Hear the mighty rush of engines, hear the lonesome hoboes call,

    Travelin through the jungles on the Wabash Cannonball.

    Oh, the Eastern states are dandy so the Western people say,

    From New York to Chicago, St. Louis by the way.

    From the hills of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall,

    No chances can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball.

    Heres to Daddy Claxton, may his name forever stand,

    And may he be remembered in the courts throughout our land.

    When his earthly race is over and the curtain round him falls,

    Well carry him on to victory on the Wabash Cannonball.

    Down the way where the nights are gay,

    and the sun shines brightly on the mountain top,

    I took a trip on a sailing ship

    and when I reached Jamaica I made a stop.

    Chorus:

    But Im sad to say Im on my way,

    Wont be back for many a day.

    My heart is down, my head is turning around,

    I had to leave a little girl in Kingston town.

    Sounds of laughter everywhere

    and the dancing girls sway to and fro.

    I must admit my heart is there

    though Ive been from Maine to Mexico.

    Down at the market you can hear

    ladies cry out while on their heads they bear

    Ake rice, salt fish are nice,

    and the rum is fine any time of year.

    It was down in old Joes barroom on the corner by the square.

    The drinks were served as usual and the usual crowd was there.

    On my left stood big Joe McKennedy, his eyes were bloodshot red.

    He took a look at the crowd around him, these are the words he said.

    I went down to St. James Infirmary, I saw my baby there.

    Stretched out on a long white table, so still, so cold, so fair.

    Let her go, let her go, God bless her, wherever she may be.

    She may search this wide world over, never find another man like me.

    When I die, please bury me in my hightop Stetson hat.

    Put a $20 gold piece on my watchchain so the boysll know I died standing pat.

    And now that youve heard my story, Ill take another shot of booze.

    If anyone should happen to ask you, Ive got the gamblers blues.

    There is a house in New Orleans that they call the Rising Sun.

    Its been the ruin of many a poor girl and Lord I know Im one.

    My mother was a tailor, she sewed those new blue jeans,

    My father was a gambler, down in New Orleans.

    The only thing a gambler needs is a suitcase and a trunk,

    And the only time hes satisfied is when hes on a drunk.

    Go tell my baby sister not to do like I have done,

    But to shun that house in New Orleans they call the Rising Sun.

    Im goin back to New Orleans, my race is nearly run,

    Goin back to spend the rest of my life beneath that Rising Sun.

    As I walked out in the streets of Laredo,

    As I walked out in Laredo one day,

    I spied a cowpuncher all wrapped in white linen,

    Wrapped in white linen as cold as the clay.

    I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy,

    These words he did say as he saw me ride by.

    Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story,

    Im shot in the breast and I surely must die.

    It was once in the saddle I used to go dashing,

    Once in the saddle I used to go gay.

    First to the dram-house and then to the card house,

    Got shot in the breast and Im dying today.

    Get six jolly cowboys to carry my coffin,

    Six pretty maidens to bear up my pall.

    Put bunches of roses all over my coffin,

    Roses to deaden the clods as they fall.

    Beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly,

    Play the death march as you carry me on.

    Take me out to the graveyard and throw the sod oer me,

    For Im a young cowboy and I know Ive done wrong.

    See them tumbling down,

    pledging their love to the ground.

    Lonely but free Ill be found,

    Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

    Cares of the past are behind,

    nowhere to go but Ill find

    Just where the trail will wind,

    Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

    I know when night is gone,

    that a new day is born at dawn.

    Ill keep rolling along.

    Deep in my heart is a song.

    Here on the range I belong,

    Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.
