OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER   

Head ladies tea party promenade
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 500 miles 'fore the day is done

Circle left
Allemande left and weave around the ring now
That old conductor, seems to be on time
Dosado
Promenade on the train down to Nashville
Chug on home
and swing the gal you know


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Four ladies chain 3/4 round you go
Those heads pair off and step to a wave, swing thru
Girls fold, peel the top, go two by two you go
Step thru, left allemande and weave the ring
It's night time on the "City of New Orleans"
Dosado and promenade by two
Sixteen cars and sixteen restless riders, I know
Chug on home
and swing the girl you do

Tea party promenade: From square position, head ladies go into the middle and do a right forearm 3/4 turn to the side position, side couple promenade to the head position to their right and turn away in four count beat to end facing center. To send the new head ladies in for 3/4 turn, original head men promenade to the right of the square and pick up their original partner and turn her and promenade to the right to the head position, at this point all couples are half around the square. Four times and you are back home with partner.

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.
