Detroit City by Porter Wagoner


I wanna go home, I wanna go home, oh Lord, I wanna go home.
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
And I dreamed about the cottonfields and home
I dreamed about my mother dear old papa, sister and brother
And I dreamed about the girl who's waited for so long.
I wanna go home, I wanna go home, oh Lord, I wanna go home.
The 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 they could only read between the lines.
I wanna go home, I wanna go home, oh Lord, I wanna go home.
(Spoken)
You know I rode the freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I'd find I've just been wastin' my time
I believe of my foolish pride on a Southbound freight and ride
(Sang)
Back to the loved ones I've left so far behind.
I wanna go home, I wanna go home, oh Lord, I wanna go home...
