Fantastic Videos of Railroading Songs - 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,
Passing trains that have no names,
Freight yards full of old black men,
And the graveyards of rusted automobiles.
