Riding on the city of New Orleans
Illinois Central, Monday morning rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail
All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulled out at Kankakee
And rolls along past houses, farms and fields
Passin trains that have no names
And freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles
Good morning, America
How are you?
Say dont you know me? Im your native son
Im the train they call the city of New Orleans
And Ill be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
Dealin card games with the old men in the club car
Penny a point aint no one 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 fathers magic carpet made of steel
Mothers with their babes asleep
Are rockin to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rail is all they feel
Good morning, America
How are you?
Say dont you know me? Im your native son
Im the train they call the city of New Orleans
Ill be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
Nighttime on the city of New Orleans
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee
Half way home, well 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 rails still aint heard the news
The conductor sings his songs again
The passengers will please refrain
This train has got the disappearing railroad blues
Good morning, America
How are you?
Say dont you know me? Im your native son
Im the train they call the city of New Orleans
Ill be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
