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 want to go home
I want to go home
Oh, how I want to 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

('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 want to go home, yeah
I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home (can't you hear me)

I want to go home
Whoa, baby I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home (somebody help me)

I want to go home, yeah
I want to go home, whoa oh
Oh, how I want to go home
