"The Wabash Cannonball" is an American folk song about a fictional train, thought to have originated in the late 19th century. Its first documented appearance was on sheet music published in 1882, titled "The Great Rock Island Route" and credited to J. A. Roff.  It was also used as the theme song by the USS Wabash (AOR-5)
