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

SPOKEN
[ �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

Hmm, I wanna go home
