Detroit City

I wanna go home, I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home
 
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
And I dreamed about those cotton fields and home
I dreamed about my mother, dear old papa, sister and brother
I dreamed about that girl who's been waiting for so long
 
I wanna go home, I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home
 
Home folks think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think I'm fine
But by day I make the cars, by night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines
 
"Cause you know, I rode a freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find that I've just been wasting
my time
So I just think I'll take my foolish pride
And put it on a Southbound freight and ride
Go on back to the loved ones
The ones that I left waiting so far behind"
 
I wanna go home, I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home
 
Thanks!
