"Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo Choo?"
"Track 29! Boy, you can give me a shine"
I can afford to board a Chattanooga Choo Choo
I got my fare and just a triffle to spare

You leave the Pennsylvania station 'bout a quarter to four
Read a magazine and then you're in Baltimore
"Dinner at the diner, nothing could be finer"
Then to have your ham and eggs in Carolina

When you hear the whisle blowin' four to the bar
Then you know that Tennisee is not very far
"Shuffle all the coal in, gotta keep it rollin'"
"Whoo Whoo Chattanooga there you are, oh"

There's gonna be a certain party in the station
"Satin and lace, I used to call funny face"
He's gonna cry until I tell him that I'll never roam
"So Chattanooga Choo Choo, won't you choo choo me home"

You leave the Pennsylvania station 'bout a quarter to four
Read a magazine and then you're in Baltimore
"Dinner at the diner, nothing could be finer"
Then to have your ham and eggs in Carolina

When you hear the whisle blowin' four to the bar
Then you know that Tennisee is not very far
"Shuffle all the coal in, gotta keep it rollin'"
"Whoo Whoo Chattanooga there you are, oh"

There's gonna be a certain party in the station
"Satin and lace, I used to call funny face"
He's gonna cry until I tell him 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"
