RCidin' on the CGity of New OCrleans,

IlAmlinois Central, MonFday morning raiCl.G

There's 1C5 cars and 1G5 restless rCiders,

and Am3 Am3 conductors, 2G5 G5 sacks of mCail.




They're Amout on a south-bound odeyssey,

the tEmrain pulls out of Kankakee,

roGllin' past the houses, farms, and fiDelds.

And the pAmassin' towns that have no name,

fEmreight yards full of old black men,

and the gravGeyards of G7rusted automoCbiles.




CHORUS:

FGood morning AGmerica. How Care you?

Say, Amdon't you know me? IF'm your native sCon.G

I'm the tCrain they call the CGity of New OAmrleansD7.

I'll be gone 5F00 mGiles when the day is dCone.




Verse:2

Dealin' cCard games with the oGld men in the cClub car,

PAmenny a point ain't Fno one keepin' scCore,G G

Won't you pCass the paper bGag that holds the bCottle,

Yeah, and fAmeel the wheels a-grGumblin' 'neath the flCoor,

And the sAmons of pullmen porters, and the Emsons of engineers,

ride their faGthers' magic carpet made of stDeel.




MoAmthers with their babes asleep,

are rEmockin' to the gentle beat,

and the rhGythm of the raG7ils is all they fCeel.




CHORUS:

FGood morning AGmerica. How Care you?

Say, Amdon't you know me? IF'm your native sCon.G

I'm the tCrain they call the CGity of New OAmrleansD7.

I'll be gone 5F00 mGiles when the day is dCone.




Verse:3

NCight time on the CGity of New OCrleans,

cAmhangin' cars in MeFmphis TennCessee,G

HaClfway home, weG'll be there by moCrnin',

through the MiAmssissippi darkness,

rolGlin' down to the sCea.




But Amall the towns and people seem,

to fEmade into a bad dream,

and the sGteel rail, still ain't heard the nDews.

The conAmductor sings his songs again,

the paEmssengers will please refrain,

this trGain's got tt disappeG7ar in' them railroad bClues.




CHORUS:

FGood morning AGmerica. How Care you?

Say, Amdon't you know me? IF'm your native sCon.G

I'm the tCrain they call the CGity of New OAmrleansD7.

I'll be gone 5F00 mGiles when the day is dCone.




I'll be gone 5F00 mGiles when the day is dCone.
