Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo Choo
Track twenty nine, Boy you can gimme a shine
I can afford to board a Chattanooga Choo Choo
I've got my fare and just a trifle to spare.
You leave the Pensylvania station 'bout a quarter to four
Read a magazine and then you're in Baltimore
Dinner in the diner
nothing could be finer
than to have your ham'n eggs in Carolina
When you hear the whistle blowin' eight to the bar
Then you know that Tennessee is not very far
Shovel all the coal in
gotta keep it rollin'
Woo woo, Chattanooga, there you are.
There's gonna be a certain party at the station
Satin and lace, I used to call funny face
She's gonna cry until I tell her that I'll never roam
So Chattanooga Choo choo
won't you choo choo me home.
