chattanooga choo choo lyrics – glenn miller orchestra

(hi there tex, what you say?)
step aside partner, it’s my day
lend an ear and listen to my version
(of a really solid, tennessee excursion)

pardon me boys, is that the chattanooga choo choo?
(yes, yes)
(track 29!)
boy, you can give me 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, nothin’ could be finer
(then 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 it rollin’
(whoo, whoo, 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, chattanooga)
get aboard
(chattanooga, chattanooga)
all aboard
(chattanooga choo choo)
(chattanooga choo choo)
won’t you choo choo me home?
(chattanooga choo choo)
