Fantastic Videos of Railroading Songs - 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.
Chattanooga Choo Choo by Glenn Miller Orchestra
From the film "Sun Valley Serenade" (1941), featuring Glenn Miller Orchestra, Tex Beneke, Paula Kelly and The Modernaires. A great video right from the movie. Seems to get cut off...but see the Dorthy Dandridge video below.

Chattanooga Choo Choo by Tex Beneke
Here is Tex Beneke in a great video of the classic sung on stage with an orchestra and back up singers.
Chattanooga Choo Choo by Bill Haley
A great recording of Bill Haley and Haley's Comets singing the classic. Shown with a still of the 45 mixed with photos Bill. Just a little bit more rock and roll than the other versions with guitar and drums replacing the those horns. Still has the classic lyrics and back up singers.
