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 But 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 And 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...
