Pardon me, boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo-Choo?
Track 29, Boy you can give me a shine.
I can afford to board the Chattanooga Choo-Choo
I've got my fare, and just a trifle to spare.

Bridge
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
Than to have your ham and eggs in Carolina
When you hear the whistle blowing eight to the bar
Then you know that Tennesee is not very far.
Shovel all the coal in, gotta keep it rollin'.
Woo-Woo, Chattanooga, there you are.

2
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
Chattanooga Choo-Choo, c'mon and choo-choo me home.
