Hank Snow – Chattanooga Choo Choo lyrics

Pardon me boy is this the Chattanooga Choo Choo
Track twenty nine boy you can give me a shine
I can't 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 nothin' could be finer
Than to have your ham and 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 a rollin'
Ooh, ohh, 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?

(Chattanooga Choo Choo won't you choo choo me home?...)
