Lyrics of City of New Orleans

Riding on the city of New Orleans
Illinois central
Monday morning rail
There's fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Three conductors and twenty five sacks of mail
They're out on the south-bound odyssey
And the train pulls out of Kankakee
Rolling past houses farms and fields
Passing towns that have no name
Freight yards full of old gray men
The graveyards of rusted automobiles
Singing good morning America how are you?
Saying 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
Oh dealing cards with the old men in the club car
Plenty of points ain't no one keeping score
Say won't you pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Yeah feel the wheels rumbling 'neath the floor
And the sons of Pullman Porters and the sons of engineers
Ride their father's magic carpet made of steel
And the days are full of restless
And the dreams are full of memories
And the echoes of the freight train whistles clear
Singing good morning America how are you?
Saying don't you know me
I'm your native son?
Yes I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
But it's twilight on the city of New Orleans
Talk about a pocket full of friends
Halfway home and we'll be there by morning
With no tomorrow waiting 'round the bend and
Singing good night America
I love you
Saying 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
Singing good morning America how are you?
Saying don't you know me
I'm your native son?
Yes I'm the train they call the city of New Orleans
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
