Bobby Bare Detroit City lyrics

 

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 who's been waitin' for so long

I want to go home

I want to go home

Oh, how I want to 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 want to go home, yeah

I want to go home

Oh, how I want to go home (Can't you hear me?)

I want to go home

Whoa, baby I want to go home

Oh, how I want to go home (Somebody help me)

I want to go home, yeah

I want to go home, whoa oh

Oh, how I want to go home

Hmm, I want to go home...
