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 cottonfields and home

I dreamed about my mother dear old papa 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

[ guitar ]

Old 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 all the bars

If only they could read between the lines

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

And I've drove this while I find I've just been wastin' my time

So I think I'm gonna pack up my foolish pride put it on that Southbound train and ride

And I'll go back to the loved ones the ones I left behind

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

[ guitar ]
