 City of new orleans  Arlo Guthrie
















   | Em        /        C        /    |  G      /    /   [1/2]D7  [1/2]D9   |


Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son.


      | G          /        D    /    | Em     Em7    A7    /  |


I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans


      | F        C       D              D7    | G    /   /   /   |


I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.





G                  D               G


Dealing card games with the old men in the club car


Em             C                  G


Penny a point ain't no one keeping score


Em                D              G


Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle


Feel the wheels rumbling 'neath the floor


   And the sons of Pullman porters and the sons of engineers


   Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel


   Mother with her babes asleep rocking to the gentle beat


   And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.


Chorus. (As above)


Nightime on the City of New Orleans


Changing cars in Memphis Tennessee


Half way home we'll be there by morning


through the Mississippi darkness rolling down to the sea.


   But all the towns and people seem to fade into a dark dream


   And the steel rail still ain't heard the news


   The conductor sings his songs again, the passagers will please refrain


   This train's got the disappearing railroad blues.


Chorus:


Good night America, How are you?


Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son.


I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans


I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.
