Southern Cannonball

Song Author Jimmie Rodgers og Roy E. Hall Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I had to quit railroading we [F]didn't agree at [C]all  
There was always something wrong with the [D7]Southern Cannon[G7]ball   
I [C]once loved a maiden [F]she was fair and [C]tall
Her [F]poppa he was the [C]engineer on the [G7]Southern Cannon[C]ball

She promised she would wed me in the [F]merry month of [C]June
And go to the magic island to [D7]spend our honey[G7]moon   
A[C]las my dreams were shattered when [F]she put me off with a [C]stall
She [F]said the whistle was [C]broken on the [G7]Southern Cannon[C]ball

I loved this girl so dearly so I [F]fixed the whistle [C]back
The next thing she told me was the [D7]caboose is off of the [G7]track
But [C]days and nights I labored to [F]get it back with the [C]train
Always [F]ready for my [C]highball when the [G7]bell refused to [C]ring

I fixed the bell in a jiffy and I [F]called the preacher [C]Dunn
Who married us in the old boxcar for the [D7]train refused to [G7]run   
We [C]made our home in a boomer shack [F]out under the southern [C]sky  
And we [F]rocked the baby to [C]sleep each night by a [G7]train whistle lulla[C]by  


I had to quit railroading we didn't agree at all
There was always something wrong with the Southern Cannonball
I once loved a maiden she was fair and tall
Her poppa he was the engineer on the Southern Cannonball

She promised she would wed me in the merry month of June
And go to the magic island to spend our honeymoon
Alas my dreams were shattered when she put me off with a stall
She said the whistle was broken on the Southern Cannonball

I loved this girl so dearly so I fixed the whistle back
The next thing she told me was the caboose is off of the track
But days and nights I labored to get it back with the train
Always ready for my highball when the bell refused to ring

I fixed the bell in a jiffy and I called the preacher Dunn
Who married us in the old boxcar for the train refused to run
We made our home in a boomer shack out under the southern sky
And we rocked the baby to sleep each night by a train whistle lullaby
