When you hear the whistle blowin’ eight to the bar
Then you know that Tennessee is not very far
A few months ago close to Australia Day a friend of mine performed this song for a cabaret night. It was the first time I had heard the song or even heard of Chattanooga and what can I say? That’s one catchy song! So when I saw that this tour went to Chattanooga I just couldn’t refuse. This is not the Chattanooga Choo Choo though, I’m not sure that rail still exists but this was an incline railway which took us up to a lookout from which on a clear day you can see seven states. Probably the seven that I probably won’t ever get to but I have resigned myself to the fact that I will not get to all 50 states.
