Capo 2 

G D G
Ridin on the City of New Orleans,
Em C G
Illinois Central, Monday mornin rail
G D G
There's fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders,
Em D G
Three con-ductors and twenty five sacks of mail
Em Bm
All a-long the south bound odyssey, the train pulls
in from Kankikee
D A
Rolls along past houses, farms and fields
Em
Passin towns that have no names
Bm
And freight yards full of old black men
D D7 G
And the graveyards of the rusted auto-mob-iles

Chorus:
C D G
Good mornin Am-erica, how are you
Em C G
I said don't you know me, I’m your native son
D G D Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
A# C D D7 G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

G D G
Dealin cards with the old men in the club car,
Em C G
A penny a point, there ain't no one keepin score
G D G
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle,
Em D G
I can feel the wheels a-grumblin neath the floor
Em
And the sons of Pullman porters
Bm
And the sons of engineers
D A
Ride their fathers magic carpet made of steel
Em
And the mothers with their babes asleep
Bm
Go rockin to the gentle beat
D D7 G
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel

Chorus:
C D G
Good mornin Am-erica, how are you
Em C G
I said don't you know me, I’m your native son
D G D Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
A# C D D7 G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

G D G
Night time on the City of New Orleans
Em C G
We're changin cars for Memphis, Tenness-ee
G D G
We're halfway home and we'll be there by mornin
Em D G
Through the Mississippi darkness rollin down to the sea
Em
And all the towns and people seem
Bm
To fade into a bad dream
D A
And the steel rail still ain't heard the news
Em
The conductor sings his songs again,
Bm
The passengers will please refrain
D D7 G
This train's got the disapp-earin railroad blues

Chorus: (twice)
C D G
Good Night Am-erica, how are you
Em C G
I said don't you know me, I’m your native son
D G D Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
A# C D D7 G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
C D G
Good Night Am-erica, how are you
Em C G
I said don't you know me, I’m your native son
D G D Em
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
A# C D D7 G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done

A# C D D7 G
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done
