Oh listen to the train coming down the line
Trying to make up all their lost time
From Buffalo to Washington

You can wash my jumper starch my overalls
Catch a train they call the Cannonball
From Buffalo to Washington

My baby's left me even took my shoes
Enough to give a girl these doggone worried blues
he's gone he's solid gone

Yonder comes the train coming down the track
Carry me away but it aint gonna carry me back
My honey babe I'm leavin you

I'm going up north I'm going up north this fall
If luck don't change I wont be back at all
honey babe I'm leaving you
