Detroit City
By Bobby Bare

           C    C7          F
I wanna go home, I wanna go home
C        G        C 
Oh how I wanna go home

     C               G                C 
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
      G                                   C      C7
And I dreamed about the cotton fields and home
  F                                C
I dreamed about my momma, dear old papa, sister, and brother
      D                                 G   
And I dreamed about the girl who's been waiting for so long


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


Recite last verse:
Cause you know I rode a freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find I've been wasting my time
So I just think I'll take my foolish pride and put it on the southbound freight and ride
And go on back to the loved ones, the ones I left waiting so far behind
