Detroit City Songtext
von Bobby Bare

Detroit City Songtext

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
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


Homefolks think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think I'm fine
By day I make the cars, by night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines

'Cause 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
So I just think I'll take my foolish pride
Put it on a Southbound freight and ride
And go on back to the loved ones, the ones that I left waitin' so far behind
I wanna go home, I wanna go home, oh how I wanna go home
