[1st verse:]
Good-bye, I'm leaving town
I've sent my baggage down
To the railway station
I've had my vacation
Before I go away
This much I want to say
I would like to have you call on me someday

When you're down in Tennessee
Stop at Chattanooga
Stop at Chattanooga
Don't forget to call on me
Down in Chattanooga
Down in Chattanooga

Accept my invitation
You can make yourself at home
I'll meet you at the station
With a "giddy-ap, giddy-ap" Napoleon
You'll find hospitality
Down in Chattanooga
Down in Chattanooga

You're just as welcome as you can be
You'll find a menu, a menu
With a lot of things you can eat up on it
When you come to Chattanooga,
Chattanooga, Tennessee

[2nd verse:]
What's mine you'll find is yours
My folks keep open doors
Anyone who will come is entirely welcome
And you'll be glad to stay
Where happy chickens lay
Sixty cents a dozen eggs
The live long day.
