Chattanooga Choo Choo Lyrics By Floyd Cramer

    pardon me boy
    is that the chattanooga choo choo
    track 9 boy you can give me a shine
    i can afford
    to board a chattanooga choo choo
    i’ve got my fare and just a trifle to spare

    well 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 you have your ham and eggs in carolina

    when you hear the whistle blowing
    eight to the bar
    then you know that tenneesse is not very far
    shovel all the coal in
    gotta keep it rolling
    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
