Fantastic Videos of Railroading Songs - The Streamline Cannonball

A long steel rail, a short cross tie,
I'm on my way back home,
I'm on the train, the queen of them all,
The streamline cannonball.

She moves along like a cannonball,
Like a star in it's heavenly flight,
The lonesome sound from the whistle you love,
As it travels through the night.


Streamlined Cannonball performed by Leroy Troy



Some excellent banjo music on this live performance by Leroy Troy of Roy Acuff's classic. A very traditional rendition. This was at the Mount Juliet Tennessee Homecoming on October 10th, 2009.


Streamlined Cannonball performed by The Limeliters



Here is a more modern take on the song by the Limeliters with three acoustic guitars, a stand up base, and a harmonica. Excellent video of a live performance on stage.


Streamlined Cannonball performed by Chet Atkins



Here is a beautiful guitar track played by Chet Atkins. No vocals on this track, just soulful guitar and harmonica. Video shows a still photo of Chet on stage.


Streamline Cannonball performed by The Shady Grove Band



The Shady Grove band play a driving bluegrass rendition of Streamline Cannonball. Excellent video of a live performance at ArtsCenter in Carrboro, North Carolina


Streamline Cannonball performed by Doc Watson



Some fantastic picking on this rendition Doc Watson and his band. Video shows different photos of Doc.
