Arlo Guthrie - The City Of New Orleans Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Riding on the City Of New Orleans
  • Illinois Central, Monday morning rail
  • Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders
  • Three Conductors; twenty-five sacks of mail
  • All along the southbound odyssey - the train pulls out of Kankakee
  • And rolls along past houses, farms, and fields
  • Passing trains that have no name, and freight yards full of old black men
  • And the graveyards of the rusted automobile
  • Good morning, America, how are you?
  • Say, 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
  • Dealing card games with the old man in the Club Car
  • Penny a point - ain't no one keeping score
  • As the paper bag that holds the bottle
  • Feel the wheels rumbling 'neath the floor
  • And the sons of Pullman Porters, and the sons of Engineers
  • Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel
  • And, mothers with their babes asleep rocking to the gentle beat
  • And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel
  • Good morning, America, how are you?
  • Say, 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
  • Night time on the City Of New Orleans
  • Changing cars in Memphis Tennessee
  • Halfway home - we'll 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 rail still ain't heard the news
  • The conductor sings his songs again - the passengers will please refrain
  • This train got the disappearing railroad blues
  • Good night, America, how are ya?
  • Said, 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
