Transpose:
D A DRidin' on the City of New Orleans
Bm G DIllinois Central Monday mornin' rail
D A DThere's 15 cars, and 15 restless riders
Bm A D3 conductors and 25 sacks of mail
Bm F#mAll along a southbound oddyssey, and the train pulls out of Kankakee
A EAnd rolls along past the houses, farms and fields
Bm F#mPassin' trains that have no name, and freightyards full of old black men
A A7 DThe graveyards of the rusted automobiles
Chorus:
G A7 DGood mornin' America, how are you?
Bm G D A7Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
D A Bm-Bm7-E7I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
C G A DI'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.
D A DDealinĀ’ card games with the old men in the club car.
Bm G DPenny a point, ainĀ’t no one keepin' score
D A DPass the paper bag that holds that bottle.
Bm A DHear the wheels rumblin' Ā‘neath the floor.
Bm F#mAnd the sons of Pullman Porters, and the sons of engineers
A ERide their father's magic carpet made of steel
Bm F#mMothers with their babes asleep are rockinĀ’ to the gentle beat
A A7 DAnd the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.
Chorus:
G A7 DGood mornin' America, how are you?
Bm G D A7Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
D A Bm-Bm7-E7I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
C G A DI'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.
D A DNighttime on the City of New Orleans.
Bm G DChanginĀ’ cars in Memphis, Tennessee
D A DHalf way home, and we'll be there by mornin'
Bm A DThrough the Mississippi darkness rollinĀ’ down to the sea.
Bm F#mAnd all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream
A EAnd the steel rails still ain't heard the news
Bm F#mThe conductor sings his songs again the passengers will please refrain
A A7 EThis train has got the disappearinĀ’ railroad blues
Chorus:
G A7 DGood mornin' America, how are you?
Bm G D A7Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
D A Bm-Bm7-E7I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
C G A DI'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.
