Lyrics City of New Orleans

Ridin' on the city of New Orleans
Illinois central monday mornin' rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Three conductors and twenty five sacks of mail
All along the southbound odyssey the train pulls out of kankakee
It rolls along past houses farms and fields
Passin' towns that have no name
Freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of rusted automobiles
Good morning America how are you?
Say don't you know me
I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
Dealin' card games with the old men in the club car
Penny a point ain't nobody keepin' score
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Feel the wheels rumblin' 'neath the floor
And the sons of pullman porters and the sons of engineers
Ride their daddy's magic carpet made of steel
Mothers with their babes asleep
Are rockin' to the gentle beat and the rhythm of the rails
Is all they feel
Good morning America how are you?
Say don't you know me
I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
Night time on the city of New Orleans
Changin' cars in
Memphis Tennessee
Halfway home we'll be there by mornin'
Through the Mississippi darkness rollin'
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 that song again
The passengers will please refrain
This train's got the disappearin' railroad blues
Good morning America how are you?
Say don't you know me
I'm your native son
I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
