Hank Snow - Lyrics


The Southern Cannonball - Album




Southern Cannonball


 
I had to quit railroadin'

We didn't agree at all

There was always something wrong

With the Southern Cannon Ball.



Refrain:

Odle ayee adle eedle

Ayee odle eedle ayee.



I once loved a maiden

She was fair and tall

Her father was the engineer

On the Southern Cannon Ball.



She promised she would wed me

In the merry month of June

And go to the magic islands

To spend our honeymoon.



At last my dreams were shattered

When she put me off with a stall

She said the whistle was broken

On the Southern Cannon Ball.



I loved this girl sincerely

So I fixed the whistle back

The next thing she told me

Was, "The caboose is off the track."



For days and nights I labored

To get it back with the train

All was ready for the "hop-off"

When, the bell refused to ring.



I fixed the bell in a jiffy

And called for Preacher Dunn

Who married us in a boxcar

But the train refused to run.
