Streamlined Cannonball

Song Author Roy Acuff Performer: Hank Snow Submitted by: Anonymous

[C](It´s the Streamlined [F]Cannon[C]ball)

A long steel rail and a short cross-tie
I'm [F]on my way back [C]home
I'm [F]on the train the [C]king of them all
The Streamlined [F]Cannon[C]ball

Oh she glides along like a cannonball
Like a [F]star on its heavenly [C]flight
This [F]lonesome sound of the [C]whistle you love
As she travels [F]through the [C]night

Her headlight gleams out into the night
Her [F]firebox flash you [C]see  
The [F]blinds I ride and the [C]lights I love
Are home sweet [F]home to [C]me  

Oh she glides along like a cannonball
Like a [F]star on its heavenly [C]flight
This [F]lonesome sound of the [C]whistle you love
As she travels [F]through the [C]night

I can see the smile of an engineer
Al[F]though he's old and [C]gray
A con[F]tented heart he a[C]waits back home
Of the Streamlined [F]Cannon[C]ball

Oh she glides along like a cannonball
Like a [F]star on its heavenly [C]flight
This [F]lonesome sound of the [C]whistle you love
As she travels [F]through the [C]night


(It´s the Streamlined Cannonball)

A long steel rail and a short cross-tie
I'm on my way back home
I'm on the train the king of them all
The Streamlined Cannonball

Oh she glides along like a cannonball
Like a star on its heavenly flight
This lonesome sound of the whistle you love
As she travels through the night

Her headlight gleams out into the night
Her firebox flash you see
The blinds I ride and the lights I love
Are home sweet home to me

Oh she glides along like a cannonball
Like a star on its heavenly flight
This lonesome sound of the whistle you love
As she travels through the night

I can see the smile of an engineer
Although he's old and gray
A contented heart he awaits back home
Of the Streamlined Cannonball

Oh she glides along like a cannonball
Like a star on its heavenly flight
This lonesome sound of the whistle you love
As she travels through the night
