Lyrics

I wanna go home I wanna go home Oh, how I wanna go home Last night, I went to Sleep in Detroit City And I dreamed about those Cotton fields and home

I dreamed about my mother Dear old papa Sister and brother I dreamed about that girl Who's been waiting 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 fine But by day, I make the cars 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 wasting my time So I just think I'll Take my foolish pride And put it on a southbound Freight and ride Go on back to the loved ones The ones that I left Waiting so far behind I wanna go home I wanna go home Oh, how I wanna go home
