UTC Alma Mater
Lookout Mountainr o’er us guarding,
Ceaseless watch doth keep.
In the valley stands our college,
where the shadows creep.
Loud the anthem swell.
Sing, O Sing of alma mater.
All her praised tell.
As in days of blood and battle
On that mountain’s height,
Soldiers fought, so she shall ever
Stand for truth and right.
Loyally, we’ll bear her standard,
Blazon’d gold and blue,
Forward, upward, ever onward,
Forth to dare and do.
Chattanooga Choo Choo
Hi there Tex, what you say
Step aside partner, it’s my day
Bend an ear and listen to my version
Of a really solid Tennessee excursion
Pardon me, boy
Is that the Chattanooga choo choo? (yes yes)
Boy, you can gimme a shine
Can you 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
Then to have your ham an’ 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 it rollin’
Woo, woo, Chattanooga there you are
There’s gonna be
A certain party at 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?
Chattanooga choo choo
