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
