Detroit City

				T&M: Danny Dill & Mel Tillis

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,
I dreamed about the girl who's been waitin' 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 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

	[ 'cause you know I rode a freight train north to Detroit City
	And after all these years I find I've just been wastin' my time
	You know what I'm gonna do? 
	I'm gonna take my foolish pride
	Get it on a southbound freight and let it ride
	I'm 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.
