C             G           C   
Riding on the City of New Orleans,
Am               F              C        G7  
Illinois Central Monday morning rail
C                   G             C 
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders,
F                    G                    C
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail.
All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulls out at Kankakee
C                                  D  
Rolls along past houses, farms and fields.
Passin' trains that have no names,
Freight yards full of old black men
        F                 G7             C
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles.


         F             G          C
Singing: Good morning America how are you?
Am                F               C
Don't you know me I'm your native son,
G7          C                   G           C
    I'm the train they call The City of New Orleans,
        F                 G7                    C
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.

It was very good, although I think the other version was slightly more acurate (plus it was the same key as Arlo Guthrie)

Other than that it was fine except for the C chord for "New Orleans" which I think should be an Am.

This is def the original goodman version, and agree with the above Am on New Orleans - but also "Rolls along" should be G not C.

agree with 06902. also, after the suggested Am on "New Orleans", change it to a D7. Then, Bb on "gone", move the F to "hundred"
