Smokey River Boys - Big Wheels Cannonball Lyrics


Original use of the Wabash Cannonball bluegrass melody

[1] This great & mighty nation…. will sing forever more….
Of the pioneers, brave engineers…and heroes by the score…..
But the world of transportation… has a new breed just as great…..
It’s the men of steel, behind the wheels….. of the big rigs hauling freight.

[cho] Listen to the rumble…. listen to the roar.
Of the big wheels on the highways…… from the mountains to the shore
Old Buffalo Bill & Casey Jones…… would never have the gall.
To risk their fate on the Interstate….. on the big wheel cannonball.

Music Channel
[2] There’s a lot of speculation…. when the big wheels roll at night.
Some think their destination…. is a truck stop on the right.
With a little ‘old cat eye waitress….. or a hot shot on the make.
But some I know.. would rather go…. for a hot shot wagon steak.

[cho] Listen to the rumble…. listen to the roar
Hear the jingle of the jukebox…. see the action on the floor.
Those giddy-up..go go babies…. do the Monkey & the Crawl.
When a swinging combination… plays the big wheel cannonball.

Turn-A-Round
[3] I try to keep my schedule… the way most drivers do.
It’s food and drinks….and forty winks…. then I go balling through….
But tonight I’ve got a hang-up…..she’s the cutest little doll……
I’ll see ya on the straightaway…… on the big wheel cannonball…..

[cho] On the big wheel cannonball…. on the big wheel cannonball
Tonight she’s riding shotgun….and I warn you one & all….
When a devil from St. Louie……takes an angel on his haul…..
Don’t look for any halos…..round….. the big wheel cannonball.

[tag] music fades to ending

[Thanks to Robert Metzgar for lyrics]
