C                            F               C
I had to quit railroading we didn't agree at all

                                          D7             G7
There was always something wrong with the Southern Cannonball

  C                   F                C
I once loved a maiden she was fair and tall

    F                C               G7             C
Her poppa he was the engineer on the Southern Cannonball

                                     F              C
She promised she would wed me in the merry month of June

                              D7             G7
And go to the magic island to spend our honeymoon

 C                                 F                     C
Alas my dreams were shattered when she put me off with a stall

    F                    C             G7             C
She said the whistle was broken on the Southern Cannonball

                                 F                 C
I loved this girl so dearly so I fixed the whistle back

                                   D7                    G7
The next thing she told me was the caboose is off of the track

    C                            F                    C
But days and nights I labored to get it back with the train

       F            C                 G7              C
Always ready for my highball when the bell refused to ring

                                  F                   C
I fixed the bell in a jiffy and I called the preacher Dunn

                                         D7               G7
Who married us in the old boxcar for the train refused to run

   C                               F                      C
We made our home in a boomer shack out under the southern sky

       F                  C                     G7                 C
And we rocked the baby to sleep each night by a train whistle lullaby
