The City Of New Orleans > > > https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Ne...ans_(song)

Beyond all shadows of doubt this haunting song is one of the most profound and beautiful melodies ever made (*-*)



Quote: "Riding on the City Of New Orleans illinois central monday morning rail"

"Fifteen cars and fifteen restless riders three conductors twenty five sacks of mail"

"All along the south bound odyssey the train pulls out of kankakee and rolls along past house farms and fields"

"Passing trains that have no name and freight yards full of old black men and the graveyards of the rusted automobile"

"Good morning america how are you? say dont 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"

"Dealing card games with the old man in the club car penny a point aint no one keeping score"

"Pass the paper bag that holds the bottle feel the wheels rumbling beneath the floor"

"And the sons of pullman porters and the sons of engineers ride their fathers magic carpets made of steel"

"And mothers with their babes asleep rocking to the gentle beat and the rhythm of the rails is all they feel"

"Good morning america how are you? say 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"

"Night time on the City Of New Orleans changing cars in memphis tennessee"

"Halfway home we'll be there by morning through the mississippi darkness rolling down to the sea"

"But all the towns and people seem to fade into a bad dream and the steel rail still aint heard the news"

"The conductor sings his songs again the passengers will please refrain this train got the disappearing railroad blues"

"Good night america, how are ya? said, 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"
