Detroit City Lyrics

Artist: Bobby Bare
Album: Detroit City

Detroit City

Artist: Tom Jones (peak Billboard position # 27 in 1967)
previously a # 16 hit for Bobby Bare
Words and Music by Danny Dill and Mel Tillis

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 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

[ รข'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 wanna go home, yeah
I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home [Can't you hear me?]

I wanna go home
Whoa, baby I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home [Somebody help me]

I wanna go home, yeah
I wanna go home, whoa oh
Oh, how I wanna go home

FADE Hmm, I wanna go home
