Chatanooga Choo Choo [D]
[Intro, vamp train feel]
[D] Pardon me, boy, is that the [G] Chattanooga [D] Choo-Choo?
[D] Track twenty [E7] nine; [A7] boy, you can give me a [D] shine. [G][A]
[D] Can you afford to board the [G7] Chattanooga [D] Choo-Choo?
I got my [E7] fare, [A7] and just a trifle to [D] spare.
[D] You leave the [G] Pennsylvania [D7] Station 'bout a
[G] quarter to four.
[G] Read a maga[D7^2]zine and then you're [G] in Balti[G7]more.
[C] Dinner in the [A7] diner, [G] nothing could be [E7] finer
[A7] Than to have your ham and eggs in [D7-alt] Carolina.
[G] When you hear the [D7-alt] whistle blowing [G] eight to the bar,
[G] Then you know that [D7-alt] Tennessee is [G] not very [G7] far.
[C] Shovel all your [A7] coal in, [G] gotta keep a-[E7]rollin'.
[Am/C] Whoo whoo, [D7^2] Chattanooga, [Am/C] there you [G] are!
[C] There's gonna be a certain [F] party at the [C] station.
[C] Satin and [D7-alt] lace, [G7] I used to call [C] funny-face. [F] [G7]
[C] She's gonna cry [C7] until I tell her that I'll [F] never roam [Fm]
So, [C] Chattanooga [Am/C] Choo-Choo,
[F] Won’t you [G] choo-choo me[C] home? [C]
Chattanooga, Chattanooga (Get aboard!)
[C] Chattanooga, Chattanooga (All aboard!)
Yeah, [C] Chattanooga [Am/C] Choo-Choo,
[F] Won’t you [G] choo-choo me [C] home?
