Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” was written by Vaughn Horton, Denver Darling, and Milt Gabler. The song was recorded in January 1946 by Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five. It topped the Rhythm and Blues charts for 18 weeks from August 1946, a record only equalled by one other hit, “The Honeydripper.” The record was one of Jordan’s biggest ever hits with both black and white audiences, peaking at number seven on the national chart  and provided an important link between blues and country music, foreshadowing the development of “rock and roll” a few years later.  Although “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” is now seen as epitomising the style known as jump blues, it was written by white songwriters whose background was in country and western music. The song is credited to Darling, Horton and Gabler. Denver Darling (1909–1981) was a “hillbilly” guitarist and songwriter,

Louis Jordan – Choo Choo Ch’Boogie Lyrics

Heading for the station with a pack on my back,

I’m tired of transportation in the back of a hack
I just love the rhythm of the clickety clack
I hear the whistle blowing, see the smoke from the stack
Pal around with democratic fellas named Mac
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

You reach your destination and alas and alack
You need some compensation to get back in the black
You take a morning paper from the top of the stack
And read the situation from the front to the back
The only job that’s open needs a man with a knack
Put me right back in the rack, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

I’m gonna settle down by the railroad track
To live a life of Riley in a beat down shack
When I hear the whistle I can peep through the crack
And see the train rollin’ when it’s ballin’ the Jack
For I just love the rhythm of the clickety clack
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Whoo whoo, whoo whoo ch’boogie
Choo choo, choo choo ch’boogie
Take me right back to the track, Jack

Take me right back to the track, Jack
