Louis Jordan - Texas And Pacific lyrics

I know you heard of the Chattanooga Choo Choo
The Rock Island, the New York Central, the New Haven and Hartford,
The Pennsylvania, the Missoura Pacific, the Southern Pacific, the
Northern Pacific is terrific
Oh, but Jack, you heard of the IC and the Santa Fee,
but you gotta take a ride on the TP

I'm bidin' time aboard the Texas and Pacific
Past big 'D' - didn't stay
About a half and hour to be specific
Cowtown's just a short way

Headin' southwest on the Texas and Pacific
Big wheels clackin' around
All the sights that I take in are quite terrific
I'm west Texas bound

Say, mister porter - I wired my gal
She's waitin' in El Paso for me
Say mister porter, Wes Pecos no less
My Stetson needs a dustin' and my pants need a press

I guess I'll have to find a half to tip the porter
"15 minutes", he says
When I arrive we'll take a trip across the border
Honeymoon in Juarez
Cause the TP Special gets me there in much less

Say, mister porter - I wired my gal
She's waitin' in El Paso for me
Say mister porter, Wes Pecos no less
My Stetson needs a dustin' and my pants need a press

I guess I'll have to find a half to tip the porter
"15 minutes", he says
When I arrive we'll take a trip across the border
Honeymoon in Juarez
Cause the TP Special gets me there in much less

TP!
