OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
*Ridin' on the City of New Orleans
Illinois central Monday morning rail

Left allemande that corner, dosado now
Left allemande that corner weave that ring
Good mornin' America, how are you?
Swing and whirl that girl, promenade
I'm a train they call the city of New Orleans
And I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Here's where the heads square thru in the middle of the ring
You get four hands around I sing, dosado the corner round now
Swing thru tonight and then the boy run right
You ferris wheel you move into the middle and then
You pass thru touch a quarter, scoot back across
Swing your corner lady round and promenade
I'm a train they call the city of New Orleans
And I'll be gone 500 miles when the day is done

Playing penny a point ain't no one keeping score

City Of New Orleans
 
 

Riding on the City of New Orleans,
Illinois Central Monday morning rail
Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders,
Three conductors and twenty-five sacks of mail.
All along the southbound odyssey
The train pulls out at Kankakee
Rolls along past houses, farms and fields.
Passin' trains that have no names,
Freight yards full of old black men
And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles.

Good morning America how are you?
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.

Dealin' card games with the old men in the club car.
Penny a point ain't no one keepin' score.
Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle
Feel the wheels rumblin' 'neath the floor.
And the sons of pullman porters
And the sons of engineers
Ride their father's magic carpets made of steel.
Mothers with their babes asleep,
Are rockin' to the gentle beat
And the rhythm of the rails is all they feel.

Good morning America how are you?
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.

Nighttime on The City of New Orleans,
Changing cars in Memphis, Tennessee.
Half way home, we'll be there by morning
Through the Mississippi darkness
Rolling down to the sea.
And all the towns and people seem
To fade into a bad dream
And the steel rails still ain't heard the news.
The conductor sings his song again,
The passengers will please refrain
This train's got the disappearing railroad blues.

Good night, America, how are you?
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.

Lyrics by Steve Goodman.
Recorded by Arlo Guthrie; Willie Nelson; others.
