City of New Orleans

The City of New Orleans is a train route operated by Amtrak in the central United States. It runs from Chicago, Illinois in the north to New Orleans, Louisiana in the south, passing through the states of Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana.


"City of New Orleans" is a folk music song written and first performed by Steve Goodman and subsequently by many other artists, notably Arlo Guthrie and Willie Nelson. The song lyrics trace the trail of the train route (above) in celebrating the "disappearin' railroad blues".
