"Cannonball Blues" as written by and A.p. Carter....
Oh listen to the train coming down the line
Trying to make up all of her lost time
From Buffalo to Washington
You can wash my jumper
Starch my overalls
Catch the train they call the Cannonball
From Buffalo to Washington

Yonder comes the train
Coming down the track
Carry me away
But it ain't gonna carry me back
My honey babe my blue eyed babe

My baby's left me she even took my shoes
Enough to give a man
These doggoned worried blues
She's gone she's solid gone

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