Lyrics

Last night, I went to Sleep in Detroit City I dreamed about them Cotton fields and home I dreamed about my mother Dear old pappy Sister and brother and 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 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 wasting 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 that I left Waiting so far behind I wanna go home, yeah I wanna go home Oh, how I wanna go home Can`t you hear me I wanna go home, oh, baby I wanna go home Oh, how I wanna go home Somebody help me I wanna go home, yeah I wanna go home Oh, how I wanna go home
