(Words, Mack Gordon. Music, Harry Warren)

Pardon me, boy. Is that the Chattanooga Choo-Choo?
Track twenty-nine, boy, you can give me a shine.
I can 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, nothing could be finer
Than 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'.
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?

Written for the film "Sun Valley Serenade," 1941;
also used in later films.
Recorded by Glenn Miller and many others.
