Cue Sheet


Sides face, grand square
Pardon me boy, is that the Chattanooga choo, choo
Track 29, boy you can give me a shine

4 ladies promenade, go rollin' around now
Turn your partner right, left allemande
Come back and swing, and promenade them
Chattanooga choo, choo
Won't you choo, choo me home

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads you promenade and travel halfway around
Walk right in and square thru, it's 4 hands around
To the outside two, a right & left thru
Pass thru, trade by, slide thru
Square thru and go 3/4 round
Swing your corner lady there and promenade down
Shovel all the coal in, gotta keep it rollin'
Woo, woo, Chattanooga there you are


Allemande left, come back and swing
Choo, choo... choo, choo
Won't you choo, choo me home

Chattanooga Choo Choo Lyrics ID: 1156

Pardon me boy, is this the Chattanooga Choo Choo?
Track twenty nine, boy you can give me a shine?
I can't 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, nothin' 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 a rollin'
Ooh, ohh, Chattanooga there you are!

There's gonna be a certain party in 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)

Composed by Harry Warren.
Lyrics by Mack Gordon.
Recorded by The Glenn Miller Orchestra; many others.
