Here she comes, look at her roll
There she goes, eating that coal
Watch her fly hugging the rails
Let her by by by the Fireball Mail

Let her go, look at her steam
Hear her blow her whistle and scream
Like a hound wagging his tail
Dallas bound bound bound the Fireball Mail

Engineer making up time
Tracks are clear look at her climb
See that freight clearing the rail
Bet she's late late late the Fireball Mail

Watch her swerve, look at her sway
Get that curve out of the way
Watch her fly, look at her sail
Let her by by by the Fireball Mail
