Recorded by Del McCoury
Written by Ronny Scaife and Alan Rhody
[C]I just heard that [F]city of New [C]Orleans
Go ramblin’ past this [F]ol’ shack of [C]mine
Yeah the windows carry [F]on
And the [C]timbers creak and [Am]groan
That [F]ol’ girl is [G7]well on down the [C]line
Some people say it [F]don’t get cold in [C]Memphis
But I’ve seen that ol’ [F]river freeze up [C]tight
Yeah she used to melt me [F]down
Till she [C]caught that southern [Am]belle
[F]Crossed that bridge and [G7]left me cold as [C]ice
That ol’ [F]train hauled away all the good times
But the [C]pain is here to stay
That ol’ [F]train is to blame for the bad times
[D7]I’m living to[G7]day
Well if [C]I could I’d [F]buy myself a [C]ticket
Check out every whistle [F]stop that came [C]along
Cover every mile of [F]track and I’d [C]bring my baby [Am]back
Put a [F]happy [G7]ending to this [C]song
