Chattanooga Choo Choo
(Hi there Tex, what you say)
Step aside partner, it's my day
Bend an ear and listen to my version
(Of a really solid Tennesse excursion)

Pardon me, boy
Is that the Chattanooga choo choo?
(Yes yes track twenty-nine)
Boy, you can gimme a shine

(Can you afford
To board the Chattanooga choo choo?)

I've got my fare
(And just a trifle to spare)

You leave the Pennsylvania Station 'bout a quarter to four
Read a magazine and then you're in Baltimore
Dinner in the diner, nothing could be finer
(Then to have your ham an' 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 (doo doo)
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?

(Chattanooga Chattanooga)
Get aboard
(Chattanooga Chattanooga)
All aboard
(Chattanooga Chattanooga)

(Chattanooga choo choo)
Won't you choo-choo me home?
(Chatanooga Choo Choo)
