SLOW TRAIN TO CHATTANOOGA — 1 Comment

  1. 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

    CHATTANOOGA CHOO CHOO
    Glenn Miller
    – from “Sun Valley Serenade”
    – words by Mack Gordon, music by Harry Warren

    It was getting the train across the ocean that no doubt delayed the news.
