Fireball Mail
(Floyd Jenkins aka Fred Rose)

Here she comes - look at her roll
There she goes - eatin' that coal
Watch her fly - huggin the rail
Let her by, by, by, the Fireball Mail.

Let her go - look at her steam
Hear her blow - whistle and scream
Like a hound - waggin' his tail
Dallas bound, bound, bound the Fireball Mail.

Engineer - makin' up time
Tracks are clear - look at her climb
See that freight - clearin' the rail
Bet she's late, late, late, the Fireball Mail.

Watch her swerve - look at her sway
Get that curve - out of the way
Watch her fly - look at her sail
Let her by, by, by, the Fireball Mail.
