chattanooga choo choo lyrics – nana mouskouri

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 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
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 choo, choo
won’t you choo, choo me home?
