City Of New Orleans Chords
D                A             D
Ridin' on the City of New Orleans
Bm               G             D
Illinois Central Monday mornin' rail
D                A               D
There's 15 cars, and 15 restless riders
Bm              A              D
3 conductors and 25 sacks of mail

Bm                               F#m
All along a southbound oddyssey, and the train pulls out of Kankakee
A                                          E
And rolls along past the houses, farms and fields
Bm                               F#m
Passin' trains that have no name, and freightyards full of old black men
A                  A7                 D
The graveyards of the rusted automobiles

Chorus:
G             A7               D
Good mornin' America, how are you?
       Bm                 G               D          A7
Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
        D                   A           Bm-Bm7-E7
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
       C     G   A                     D
I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

D                   A                           D
Dealin' card games with the old men in the club car.
Bm              G                     D
Penny a point, ain't no one keepin' score
D               A                     D
Pass the paper bag that holds that bottle.
Bm              A                   D
Hear 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 carpet made of steel
Bm                                  F#m
Mothers with their babes asleep are rockin' to the gentle beat
A                     A7                D
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.

Chorus:
G            A7               D
Good mornin' America, how are you?
       Bm             G             D      A7
Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
        D                   A           Bm-Bm7-E7
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
       C     G   A                     D
I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

D                A           D
Nighttime on the City of New Orleans.
Bm               G             D
Changin' cars in Memphis, Tennessee
D                  A                 D
Half way home, and we'll be there by mornin'
            Bm                   A                   D
Through the Mississippi darkness rollin' down to the sea.

Bm                           F#m
And all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream
        A                                 E
And the steel rails still ain't heard the news
        Bm                              F#m
The conductor sings his songs again the passengers will please refrain
        A                  A7                E
This train has got the disappearin' railroad blues

Chorus:
G            A7               D
Good mornin' America, how are you?
       Bm             G             D      A7
Sayin' don't you know me?, I'm your native son
        D                   A           Bm-Bm7-E7
I'm the train they call the City of New Orleans
       C     G   A                     D
I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done.

About the artist behind City Of New Orleans Chords:

Willie Nelson (born April 30, 1933) is an American singer-songwriter and actor. He is widely regarded as one of the most beloved and notorious country music singers. He reached his greatest fame during the so-called "outlaw country" movement of the 1970s, but remains iconic, especially in American popular culture. In recent years he has continued to tour, record, and perform, and this, combined with activities in advocacy of cannabis, as well as a well-publicized 2006 arrest for cannabis possession, have made him the subject of renewed media attention.
