Cannon Ball Blues-Frank Hutchison
Spanish tuning, with a slide

Oh the blues ain't nothin' but a good man a-feelin' bad
Oh the blues ain't nothin' but a good man a-feelin' bad
I know that feelin', it's one I've often had

Went to the bedside, looked in the woman's face
I went to the bedside, and I looked in the woman's face
"I love you, honey, but I don't like your low-down ways."

I opened up the door and I stepped out on the ground
I opened up the door and I stepped out on the ground
"Good-bye, honey, I'm Alabamoh bound."

Yonder come that train, comin' down the railroad track
Yonder comes that train, she's comin' down the railroad track
She'll take me away, but she ain't a-gonna bring me back

When I leave here, don't you wear no black
Oh, when I leave here, honey, don't you wear no black
If you do, my ghost's gonna sneak right back

That train I ride, she's called the Cannonball
That train I ride, she's called the Cannonball
There's sixteen coaches, she carries no blinds at all

Gonna lay my head down on some railroad line
Gonna lay my head down on some railroad line
Let the Cannonball try and pacify my mind

I looked out the window, as fur as I could see
I looked out the window, as fur as I could see
While the brass band a-playin', "Nearer My God To Thee"
