From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
From the green ol' Smoky mountains to the south lands by the
She's mighty tall and handsome and she's known quite well by all
She's the regular combination on the Wabash Cannonball

  Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
  As she glides along the woodland through the hills and by the
  Hear the mighty rush of the engine, hear the lonesome hoboes call
  You're traveling through the jungles on the Wabash Cannonball

Our eastern states are dandy, so the people always say
From New York to St. Louis with Chicago by the way

And always be remembered through the courts throughout the land
His earthly race is over, now the curtains round him fall
We'll carry him home to victory on the Wabash Cannonball
