Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Circle left
From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
Men star by the right hand and rolling round the floor
Allemande left your corner girl, turn the partner by the right
Allemande left your corner, weave around the ring
Listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
Swing your lady round and promenade the floor
She's mighty tall and handsome
And she's known well by all
She's the combination called the Wabash Cannon Ball


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) promenade halfway around you go
Come down the middle, pass thru, partner trade you know
Square thru 4 hands, go moving around the ring
Right & left thru with the outside and turn that pretty Jane
Star thru, slide thru, corner lady swing
Swing and whirl the corner girl and promenade the ring
She's mighty tall and handsome
And she's known well by all
She's the combination called the Wabash Cannon Ball


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade, go one time around
Back home and swing, swing your man around
Join hands circle to the left, around the ring
Allemande left your corner girl and weave around the ring
Oh listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
Swing your lady around and, promenade the floor
She's mighty tall and handsome
And she's known well by all
She's the combination called the Wabash Cannon Ball

Wabash Cannonball
 
 

From the great Atlantic ocean to the wide Pacific shore
From the green Ol' Smoky Mountains
To the south land by the shore
She's mighty tall and handsome
And she's known quite well by all
She's a regular combination on the Wabash Cannonball

Chorus:
Just listen to the jingle, the rumble and the roar
As we glide across the woodlands
Through the hills and by the shore
Hear the mighty rush of the engines
Hear those lonesome hoboes call
We're gliding through the jungles on the Wabash Cannonball

Now the eastern states are dandy, so the western people say
From New York to St. Louis with Chicago by the way
From the hills of Minnesota where the rippling waters fall
No chances can be taken on the Wabash Cannonball

Chorus

Here's to Daddy Klaxton
May his name forever stand
And always be remembered
Through the courts throughout the land
His earthly race is over
Now the curtains 'round him fall
We'll carry him home to victory
On the Wabash Cannonball

Chorus

Lyrics by J. A. Roff.
Recorded by The Carter Family; Roy Acuff; many others.
