Southern Cannonball
Recorded by Hank Snow
Written by Jimmie Rodgers and Roy E. Hall

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
