Verse F# C# F# Ridin' on the City of New Orleans Ebm B F# Illinois Central, Monday mornin' rail F# C# F# 15 cars & 15 restless riders Ebm C# F# Three conductors, 25 sacks of mail Bridge Ebm Bb All along the southbound odyssey the train pulls out of Kankakee C# Ab Rolls along past houses, farms & fields Ebm Bb Passin' graves that have no name, freight yards full of old black men C# C#sus4 F# And the graveyards of rusted automobiles Chorus B C# F# Good mornin' America, how are you? Ebm B F# Don't you know me? I'm your native son! F# C# F# I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans E B C# F# I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done Dealin' cards with the old men in the club car Penny a point, ain't no one keepin' score Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle And feel the wheels rumblin' neath the floor And the sons of Pullman porters & the sons of engineers Ride their fathers' magic carpets made of steel Mothers with their babes asleep, rockin' to the gentle beat And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel Good mornin' 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 500 miles when the day is done. Night time on the City of New Orleans Changin' cars in Memphis, Tennessee Halfway home, we'll be there by mornin' Thru the Mississippi darkness rollin' 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 train got the disappea rin' 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 500 miles when the day is done.
