[Into] D

D A D Bm G D

Riding on the City of New Orleans_____ Illinois Central Monday morning rail

D A D Bm A

Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders ______three conductors and twenty-

D Bm F#m

Five sacks of mail. All along the south bound odyssey, the train _____

A E

Pulls out of Kankakee Rolls along past houses farms and fields

Bm F#m

Passing trains that have no name, freight yards of old black men

A A7 D

And graveyards of rusted automobiles.

[Chorus]

G A D Bm G D A7

Good morning America, How are you? Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son. ______

D A Bm Bm7 G A A9

I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans_________ I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day

D x2

Is done.

D A D Bm

Dealing card games with the old men in the club car ______Penny a point Ain't

G D A D

No one keeping score Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle

Bm A D Bm

_____Feel the wheels rumbling 'neath the floor And the sons of Pullman porters

F#m A E

And the sons of engineers Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel

Bm F#m A

Mother with her babes asleep rocking to the gentle beat and the rhythm of

A7 D

The rails are all they feel.

[Chorus]

G A D Bm G D A7

Good morning America, How are you? Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son. ______

D A Bm Bm7 G A A9

I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans_________ I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day

D x2

Is done.

[Solo] G A D Bm G D A7

D A Bm Bm7 G A A9 D

D A D Bm G D

Nighttime on the City of New Orleans_____ Changing cars in Memphis Tennessee

D A D Bm

Half way home we'll be there by morning ______through the Mississippi

A D Bm

Darkness rolling down to the sea. But all the towns and people seem

F#m A E

To fade into a dark dream And the steel rail still ain't heard the news

Bm F#m

The conductor sings his songs again, the passengers will please refrain

A A7 D

This train got the disappearing railroad blues.

[Chorus]

G A D Bm G D A7

Good morning America, How are you? Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son. ______

D A Bm Bm7 G A A9

I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans_________ I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day

D x2

Is done.

[Ending] D A D Bm G D Start to Fade D A D
