G             D       G          (F#)
Riding on the City of New Orleans
Em               C              G
Illinois Central Monday morning rail
D                G     (F#)
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Em             D                    G    (F#)
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail

Em                                 Bm
All along the south bound odyssey, the train pulls out of Kenkakee
D                                 A
Rolls along past houses farms and fields
Em                                Bm
Passin' trains that have no name, and freight yards full of old black men
D                        G
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles

C             D               G
Good morning America, how are ya?
Em                 C               G
Said, don't you know me, I'm your native son
D       G                   D           Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
F         C       D                     G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Dealing card games 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
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 their babes asleep rocking to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

C             D               G
Good morning America, how are ya?
Em                 C               G
Said, don't you know me, I'm your native son
D       G                   D           Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
F         C       D                     G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

Nightime 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 train got the disappearing railroad blues

C             D               G
Good morning America, how are ya?
Em                 C               G
Said, don't you know me, I'm your native son
D       G                   D           Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
F         C       D                     G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
