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

Stephen Stills – Love the one you’re with (1970)

If you’re down and confused

And you don’t remember who you’re talking to
Concentration slips away
Because your baby is so far away

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

Don’t be angry, don’t be sad
Don’t sit crying over good times you’ve had
Well there’s a girl sitting right next to you
And she’s just waiting for something to do

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

Oh yea oh yea, yea
Lord, love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
Why don’t you love?

Turn your heartache right into joy
She’s a girl and you’re a boy
Did you get it together and make it nice?
When you ain’t gonna need anymore advice

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
Sometimes you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, love the one you’re with
You gotta love, love

“Istanbul (Not Constantinople)”

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it’s Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Now it’s Turkish delight on a moonlit night

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
So if you’ve a date in Constantinople
She’ll be waiting in Istanbul

Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can’t say
People just liked it better that way

So take me back to Constantinople
No, you can’t go back to Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That’s nobody’s business but the Turks

Tom Jones – I Who Have Nothing

 

“I (Who Have Nothing)”

I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Adore you, and want you so
I’m just a no one,
With nothing to give you but Oh
I Love You

He, He buys you diamonds
Bright, sparkling diamonds
But believe me, dear when I say,
That he can give you the world,
But he’ll never love you the way
I Love You

He can take you anyplace he wants
To fancy clubs and restaurants
But I can only watch you with
My nose pressed up against the window pane
I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Must watch you, go dancing by
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else
When darling it’s I
Who Loves you

I Love You
I Love You
I Love You
