Chattanooga Choo Choo!


Pardon me, boy
Is that the Chattanooga choo choo?


Track twenty-nine
Boy, you can gimme a shine.

















I can afford to board a 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 an’ eggs in Carolina.






Linking to Anni's Thursday Theme Song.

Cute post - and yes, I'll be humming that tune all day too. But it'll be fun! By the way, where was this train?
I need to message you about having your blog published as a book, since I've been wanting to do that too.
Have a good day!

Fond childhood memory was to ride the Chesapeake and Ohio passenger car to town on Saturday. Still love trains. Your little conductor seems like he's in a perfect spot.

Nancy said...

You sure are doing a bang up job connecting your pictures and songs.....and your conductor is a cutie....

Red said...

I always like posts that use a song and then show bang on pictures to illustrate the song.

Love the first shot, and the others are perfect, too. This has been one of my favorite songs for more years than I care to admit. Since I was a child, a long, long time ago.
