Thread Name: Lyr Req: Chattanooga Choo-Choo & Shoe Shine Boy
Here are the chords I use. Swing tempo, with a strong shuffle feel. Each chord symbol is played as two downstrokes, unless two are hyphenated, then one stroke each. Good luck. --

|A-E7 A/D9 D9/A A6/Amaj7 A#°/    (Pardon me, boy, is that the Chatanooga Choo Choo?)
Bm7 E9/Bm7 E9/A A/F9 E9/             (Track 29, well you can give me a shine!)
A-E7 A/ D9 D9/A A6/ Amaj7 A#°/      (I can afford to board the Chatanooga Choo Choo)
Bm7 E7/ Bm7 E9/A A6/A A7/            (I've got my fair, and just a trifle to spare.)

(Bridge)(You leave the...)
Dma7 Em7/F#m7 Em7/                     (Pennsylvania Station at a quarter to four)
Dma7 Em7/F#m7 Em7/                      (Read a magazine and then your in Baltimore)
D C#7/F#m7 B7/                                 (Dinner in the diner, nothin' could be finer)
E7 E7/A7 A7/                                       (Than to have your ham and eggs in Carolina)!
