City of New Orleans chords
Arlo Guthrie 1972 (Steve Goodman)

Capo IV *

[Intro}

D

[Verse 1]

D             A       D   
Riding on the City of New Orleans
Bm               G              D    A
Illinois Central Monday morning rail
D                A                D   
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
Bm                   A                    D  
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail.
     Bm                                F#m 
All along the south bound odyssey, the train pulls out of Kenkakee
A                                 E   
Rolls along past houses farms and fields
Bm                                F#m
Passing trains that have no name, freight yards of old black men
    A             A7           D    
And graveyards of rusted automobiles.

[Chorus]

G             A           D      
Good morning America, how are you?                                                       
     Bm                 G               D    
Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son.
A7       D                   A       Bm         E7    
I'm  the train they call the City of New Orleans
        C         G       A                     D    
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.

[Verse 2]

        D                   A              D
Dealing card games with the old men in the club car
Bm                  G              D    A
Penny a point ain't no one keeping score
D                       A         D
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Bm              A                   D
Feel the wheels rumblin' 'neath the floor
        Bm                              F#m
And the sons of Pullman porters and the sons of engineers
A                                         E
Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel
Bm                               F#m
Mothers with their babes asleep, rockin' to the gentle beat
        A             A7                D
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.

[Chorus]

G             A           D      
Good morning America, how are you?                                                       
     Bm                 G               D    
Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son.
A7       D                   A       Bm         E7    
I'm  the train they call the City of New Orleans
        C         G       A                     D    
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.

[Verse 3]

D                 A       D   
Night time on the City of New Orleans
Bm               G             D   A
Changing cars in Memphis Tennessee
D            A                 D   
Halfway home we'll be there by morning
            Bm                   A                   D  
through the Mississippi darkness rolling down to the sea.
    Bm                               F#m
But all the towns and people seem to fade into a dark dream
        A                                E
And the steel rail still ain't heard the news
    Bm                                   F#m
The conductor sings his songs again, the passengers will please refrain
     A                  A7               D
This train got the disappearing railroad blues.

[Chorus]

G            A          D      
Good night America, how are you?                                                       
     Bm                 G               D    
Say, don't you know me, I'm your native son.
A7       D                   A       Bm         E7    
I'm  the train they call the City of New Orleans
        C         G       A                     D    
I'll be gone five hundred miles when the day is done.
