Lyrics 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 at 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
'Cos you know
I rode the freight train north to Detroit city
And after all these years I find
I've just been wastin' my time
So I just think
I'll take my foolish pride
And put it on a southbound freight and ride
And go on back to the loved ones
The ones that I left waitin' so far behind
I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Oh how I wanna go home
I wanna go home
