Detroit City Lyrics
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City and dreamed about the life I left at home

I dreamed about my mother dear old papa sister and brother

I dreamed about the girl who's been waiting for so long

I wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home

Homefolks 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 and by night I make the bars

If they could only read between the lines

I wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home

Cause you know I rode the freight train north to Detroit City

And after all these years I find that I've just been wastin' my time

So I just think I'll take my foolish pride and put it on a Southbound freight and ride

And go on back to the loved ones I left so far behind

I wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home
