Wabash Cannonball   (Red Boot Star 1277)   Jack O'Leary
OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade inside the ring you go
Get on home and swing your man, once around you know
Join hands circle left, get movin' round the hall
Allemande left your corner, weave the ring you all
Listen to the jingle, the runble and the roar
Swing your honey once around then promenade the floor
*Hear the mighty rush of engine, hear the lonesome hobo's call
You're racing through the jungle on the Wabash Cannonball


FIGURE    Plus, corner progression

Head couples promenade halfway round you go
Down the middle, star thru, pass thru you know
Swing thru with the outside two, boys run to the right
Ferris wheel, double pass thru
Track 2 (choo, choo), that corner swing
Allemande left new corner, then promenade the ring
She's long and she's handsome, and known quite well by all
A handsome combination called the Wabash Cannonball


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*When this mighty race is over and the curtain round it falls
They'll carry me back to Dixie on the Wabash Cannonball


TAG

Then you bow to your partner and your corner too
That's it, that's it, that's all
