Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

City Of New Orleans  Steve Goodman

[C]Riding on the [G]City of New [C]Orleans,
[Am]Illinois Central [F]Monday morning [C]rail     [G7]
[C]Fifteen cars and fif[G]teen restless [C]riders,
[F]Three conductors and [G]twenty-five sacks of [C]mail.
All [Am]along the southbound odyssey
The [Em]train pulls out at Kankakee
[C]Rolls along past houses, farms and [D]fields.
[Am]Passin' trains that have no names,
[Em]Freight yards full of old black men
And the [F]graveyards of the [G7]rusted automobi[C]les.

Singing: [F]Good morning A[G]merica how [C]are you?
[Am]Don't you know me [F]I'm your native [C]son,
[G7]    I'm the [C]train they call The [G]City of New [C]Orleans,
I'll be [F]gone five hundred [G7]miles when the day is [C]done.
