Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga Choo Choo?
 Track twenty nine, boy you can gimme a shine 
I can afford to board a 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, nothing could be finer 
Than to have your ham 'n' 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  Satin and lace, I used to call funny face
She's gonna cry until I tell her that I'll never roam
