Arlo Guthrie - City of New Orleans


The City of New Orleans by Steve Goodman

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.

CHORUS: 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.

CHORUS

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.

Well, if you include Schoolhouse Rock, I was always partial to "Elementary My Dear (No. 2)", "Three is a Magic Number" and "My Hero Zero".

But then growing into the 80s, we had Tommy 2tone, er, Tutone singing 8-6-7-5-3-0-9, the most popular phone number since Pennsylvania 6-5000 (if you don't count the Partridge Family's Echo Valley 2-6809 ... which most people don't, of course...)

Pennsylvania 6-5000

Call 1-212-PEnnsylvania 6-5000 and you'll get the same business that used the number in 1940, when the song was popular.

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...work was officially over 20 minutes ago, but it it impossible to get across town at this hour. I always spend some Canteen time before attempting navigate the mess, and now with my route home IN MAJOR UPHEAVAL, and major reconstruction, I have to work out a different route (which is not easy).

I shone in PT last night. Made 4.3 miles on the bike in 15 minutes and demolished a couple of other PR's in hamstring curls and leg-lifts. But of course, the legs are heavy today. :)

I hope you can work out a safe route for your journey home - take it nice and easy! See you in a while!

Seven Daffodils

I may not have a mansion
I haven’t any land
Not even a paper dollar
To crinkle in my hand.

But I can give you morning
On a thousand hills.
And kiss you and give you
Seven Daffodils.

Folk song I know by the Brothers Four. Very pretty...
