Song: City of New Orleans written by: Steve Goodman as performed by: Johnny Cash Bb F Bb Riding on the City of New Orleans Gm D# Bb Illinois Central Monday morning rail Bb F Bb Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders Gm F Bb Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail. Gm Dm All along the south bound odyssey, the train pulls out of Kenkakee F C Rolls along past houses farms and fields Gm Dm Passing trains that have no name, freight yards of old black men F F7 Bb And graveyards of rusted automobiles. Chorus: D# E# Bb Good morning America, how are you? Gm D# Bb Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son. Bb F Gm G7 I'm a train they call the City of New Orleans D# E# Bb I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done. Verse: Bb F Bb Dealing card games with the old men in the club car Gm D# Bb Penny a point ain't noone keeping score Bb F Bb Pass the paper bag but hold the bottle Gm F Bb Feel the wheels rumbling 'neath the floor Gm Dm And the sons of Pullman porters, and the sons of engineers F C Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel Gm Dm Mother with her babes asleep, rocking to the gentle beat F F7 Bb And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel. ::Chorus:: Bb F Bb Nightime on the City of New Orleans Gm D# Bb Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee Bb F Bb Half way home we'll be there by morning Gm F Bb through the Mississippi darkness rolling down to the sea. Gm Dm and all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream F C And the steel rail still ain't heard the news Gm Dm The conductor sings his songs again, the passagers will please refrain F F7 Bb This train got the disappearing railroad blues. Chorus: D# E# Bb Good night America, How are you? Gm D# Bb Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son. Bb F Gm G7 I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans D# E# Bb I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.
