Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City

I dreamed about them cotton fields of home

I dreamed about my mother, dear old pappy, sister and brother

And I dreamed about the girl whos been waitin?for so long



I wanna go home

I wanna go home

Oh, how I wanna go home



Home folks think Im big in Detroit City

From the letters that I write they think Im just fine, yes they do

But by day I make the cars and by night I make the bars

If only they could read between the lines



SPOKEN

[ cause you know I rode a freight train north to Detroit City

And after all these years I find Ive just been wastin?my time

You know what Im gonna do?

Im gonna take my foolish pride

Get it on a southbound freight and let it ride

Im gonna go back to the loved ones

The ones I left waiting so far behind]



I wanna go home, yeah

I wanna go home

Oh, how I wanna go home [Cant you hear me?]



I wanna go home

Whoa, baby I wanna go home

Oh, how I wanna go home [Somebody help me]



I wanna go home, yeah

I wanna go home, whoa oh

Oh, how I wanna go home



FADE Hmm, I wanna go home
