 {st:Willie Nelson}
 
 [D]Ridin' on the Cit[A]y of New Orlea[D]ns
 [Bm]Illinois Central [G]Monday mornin'[D] rail
 [D]There's 15 cars, [A]and 15 restless [D]riders
 [Bm]3 conductors and[A] 25 sacks of ma[D]il
 
 [Bm]All along a southbound oddyssey, [F#m]and the train pulls out of Kankakee
 [A]And rolls along past the houses, farms and [E]fields
 [Bm]Passin' trains that have no name,[F#m] and freightyards full of old black men
 [A]The graveyards of t[A7]he rusted automobil[D]es
 
 Chorus:
 [G]Good mornin' A[A7]merica, how are y[D]ou?
 Sayin' [Bm]don't you know me?,[G] I'm your native[D] son[A7]
 I'm the [D]train they call the [A]City of New [Bm-Bm7-E7]Orleans
 I'll be[C] gone [G]500 [A]miles when the day is [D]done.
 
 [D]Dealin? card games w[A]ith the old men in the club [D]car.
 [Bm]Penny a point, a[G]in?t no one keepin' sc[D]ore
 [D]Pass the paper b[A]ag that holds that bot[D]tle.
 [Bm]Hear the wheels [A]rumblin' ?neath the [D]floor.
 
 [Bm]And the sons of Pullman Porters, and the sons of engineers[F#m]
 [A]Ride their father's magic carpet made of [E]steel
 [Bm]Mothers with their babes asleep are [F#m]rockin? to the gentle beat
 [A]And the rhythm of the [A7]rails is all they [D]feel.
 
 Chorus:
 [G]Good mornin' [A7]America, how are [D]you?
 Sayin' [Bm]don't you know [G]me?, I'm your [D]native [A7]son
 I'm the [D]train they call the [A]City of New [Bm-Bm7-E7]Orleans
 I'll be[C] gone [G]500 [A]miles when the day is [D]done.
 
 [D]Nighttime on the [A]City of New [D]Orleans.
 [Bm]Changin? cars in [G]Memphis, Tenne[D]ssee
 [D]Half way home, and [A]we'll be there by [D]mornin'
 Through the [Bm]Mississippi darkness [A]rollin? down to the [D]sea.
 
 And all [Bm]the towns and people seem to [F#m]fade into a bad dream
 And the [A]steel rails still ain't heard the [E]news
 The cond[Bm]uctor sings his songs again the [F#m]passengers will please refrain
 This tra[A]in has got the disa[A7]ppearin? railroad [E]blues
 
 Chorus:
 [G]Good mornin' [A7]America, how are [D]you?
 Sayin' [Bm]don't you know [G]me?, I'm your [D]native [A7]son
 I'm the [D]train they call the [A]City of New [Bm-Bm7-E7]Orleans
 I'll be[C] gone [G]500 [A]miles when the day is [D]done.
