"Detroit City" lyrics

Detroit City

Last night
I went to sleep
In Detroit City
And I dreamed about
Those cotton fields and home
Oh, I dreamed about my mother
My Dad, sisters and brother
And I dreamed about that girl
Who's been waiting for so long

I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Oh Lord, I wanna go home

The home folks
Think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letters
I write home
They think I'm fine
Cause the day I make the cars
Then at 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
I've just been wasting my time
So I think I'll take my foolish pride
Put it on a south bound freight and ride
And go back to the love ones
The ones I left behind

I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Oh Lord, I wanna go home

I wanna go home
I wanna go home
