Andrews Sisters – Chattanooga Choo Choo lyrics

Hello railroad
Is this the railroad?
I want a oneway ticket down to Tennesee
I'm leaving immediately
Chattanooga - here I come

Pardon me boy, it that the Chattanooga Choo Choo?
Right on track Twenty-nine, Boy you can gimme a shine
I can afford to board the Chattanooga Choo Choo
I've got my fare, and just a trifle to spare

You'll 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 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
In satin and lace
I used to call Funny Face
She's gonna cry
Untill I tell her that I'll never roam
So Chattanooga Choo Choo won't you choo choo me home
