Commencing In Chattanooga Lyrics

 

Commencing In Chattanooga Song Lyrics


Clarence
Commencing in chattanooga
Boys
Commencing in chattanooga
Clarence
On the southern railroad line
Boys
On the southern railroad line
Andy
Come on roy! Grab on!
Roy
Where are we going, andy?
Andy
Who cares! Just don't fall off!
All
Whoo whoo-oo
Whoo whoo-oo
Haywood
I got up in the morning when my sleep was done
And i felt that cheery chattanooga sun
Then i thanked the lord above that i was still alive
And i waited for the "six-o-five"
All
Commencing in chattanooga
Haywood
And it chugga-chugga'd in and i said there you are
As i scrambled in the old box car
Then i settled back believin'
That the world was fine
I was travelin' on the southern line
All
Commencing in chattanooga
On the southern railroad line
Haywood
Now you can take your b and o
And you can take your santa fe
And you can take your old rock island line
All
And throw them all away
Haywood
And if the pennsylvania calls
Just say you want your money back
And if the new york central's on the phone
All
Tell 'em they're way off the track
Commencing in chattanooga
(commencing in chattanooga)
Commencing in chattanooga
On the southern railroad line
On the southern railroad line
Interlocutor
Thank you boys. Now, one more time!
Haywood, olen, ozie and clarence
Now you can take your b and o
Haywood, charlie, andy and eugene
And you can take your santa fe
Haywood, roy, ozie and willie
And you can take your old rock island line
All
And throw them all away
Olen
And if the pennsylvania calls
Roy
Just say you want your money back
Andy
And if the new york central's on the phone
Olen, roy and andy
Tell 'em they're way off the track
All
Commencing in chattanooga
Commencing in chattanooga
On the southern railroad line
On the southern railroad line
Haywood
Far away places! They are in my bones! I know all the states! Southeast to georgia. Down to pensacola. North to knoxville.
West to arkansas. And straight on to shreveport. I know the train schedules. When the freights leave. When they arrive. I can
Light a butt in the wind on top of a moving boxcar! I am free! I am free! I am free!
There ain't a soul can hol' me back
'cause i am just as free as air
As long as i got legs
And trains got wheels
I could arrive me anywhere
And if the lord above comes down
And asks you where the hell i am
Just answer, "no one knows
Where haywood goes"
'cause i'm a box car baby lamb
All
Commencing in chattanooga
Commencing in chattanooga
On the southern railroad line
Roy
Why's this train slowing down andy?
Andy
This train ain't supposed to stop 'til memphis.
Roy
We're a long way from memphis.
