    Riding on The City of New Orleans, Illinois Central Monday morning rail C 0003

    C(4) G7(4) C(8) Am(4) G7(4) C(8) Csus 0013

    Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders, 3 conductors 25 sacks of mail

    Am(8) Em(8) Em 0432

    All along the Southbound Odyssey, The train pulls out of Kankakee

    G7(8) D7(8) F 2010

    And rolls along the houses farms and fields

    Am(8) Em(8) G7 0212

    Passing towns that have no name, And the freight yards full of old black men

    G7(8) C(4) C7(4)

    And the graveyard of rusted automobiles

    Chorus:

    F(4) G7(4) C(8)

    Good morning America how are you

    Am(4) F(4) C(4) G7(4)

    Say don't you know me I'm your native son

    C(4) G7(4) Am(4) D7(4)

    I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans

    Bb(4) G7(4) C(8)

    I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done

    Verse 2

    C(4) G7(4) C(8) Am(4) F(4) C(8)

    Dealin' cards with old men in the club car, penny a point ain't no one keeping score

    C(4) G7(4) C(8) Am(4) G7(4) C(8)

    Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle, feel the wheels grumblin neath the floor

    Am(8) Em(8)

    All the sons of Pullman porters, And the sons of engineers

    G7(8) D7(8)

    Ride the father's magic carpet made of steel

    Am(8) Em(8)

    Mothers with their babies asleep, A rockin to the gentle beat

    G7(8) C(4) C7(4)

    And the rhythm of the rail is all that they feel

    Halfway home and we'll be there by mornin'

    Am(4) G7(4) C(8)

    Through the Mississippi darkness rollin down to the sea

    Am(8) Em(8)

    And all the towns and people seem, to fade into a bad dream

    G7(8) D7(8)

    And the steel rail still ain't heard the news

    Am(8) Em(8)

    conductor sings his song again, the passengers will please refrain

    G7(8) C(4) C7(4)

    This trains got th' disappearing railroad blues
