Detroit City Lyrics

Artist: Dolly Parton
Album: 9 To 5 & Odd Jobs

You know 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 sisters and brothers
I dreamed about that love who's been waiting there for so long

I wanna go home I wanna go home
Oh how I wanna go home

My kinfolks think I'm big in Detroit City
From all the letters that I write they think I'm fine
By day I make the cars but by night I make all the bars
Oh if only they'd just read between the lines

But now I wanna go home I wanna go home
Oh how I wanna go home

You know I rode the freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find I've just been wastin' my time
Think I'll put my foolish pride on a Southbound train and ride
Head on back to the loved ones I left waiting there behind

I wanna go home...
I wanna go home...
I wanna go home...
I wanna go home...
