City Of New Orleans  Steve Goodman



[F]                                     
[F]Riding on the [C]City of New [F]Orleans
[Dm]Illinois Central [Bb]Monday morning [F]rail
[F]Fifteen cars and [C]fifteen restless [F]riders
[Dm]Three conductors and [C]twenty-five sacks of [F]mail
All [Dm]along the south bound odyssey, the [Am]train pulls out of Kankakee
[C]Rolls along past houses farms and [G]fields
[Dm]Passing trains that have no name, [Am]freight yards of old black men
C Bb F F5G5A5 (Listen to it and youīll
And graveyards of rusted automobiles get it)

[Bb]Good morning [C]America, How [F]are you?
Say, [Dm]don't you know me, [Bb]I'm your native [F]son.
[C]I'm the [F]train they call the [C]City of New[Dm] Or[C]le[Bb]ans
I'll be [D#]gone five [Dm]hundred [C]miles when the day is [F]done

Dealing card games with the old men in the club car
Penny a point ain't noone keeping score
Pass the paper bag but 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
Mothers with her babes asleep rocking to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

Good morning 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

Night time 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 bad dream
And the steel rail still ain't heard the news
The conductor sings his songs again, the passengers will please refrain
This trainīs got the disappearing railroad blues

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

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
