Riding on the City of New Orleans Illinois Central, Monday morning rail 15 cars and 15 restless riders 3 conductors, 25 sacks of mail. All along the southbound odyssey, the train pulls out of Kankakee And rolls along past houses farms and fields Passing trains that have no name, and freight yards full of old black men And the graveyards of the rusted automobiles. Good morning America, how are you 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 500 miles when the day is done
