Detroit City

	  		 
C                                                            F         C  
I wanna go home, i wanna go home, oh how i   
G                         C  
Wanna go home  
C                                         G                                 C  
Last night i went to sleep in detroit city  
                                                                                
            G  
And i dreamed about the cotton fields and home  
          C                                                                    
F                              
I dreamed about my mother, dear old papa sister   
  
And brother  
             D  
And i dreamed about the girl who's been waiting   
                G  
For so long  
  
                                  chorus  
C                                          G                           C  
Homefolks think i'm big in detroit city  
                                                                                
               G  
From the letters that i write they think i'm fine  
                C                                              F  
But by day i make the cars by night i make the bars  
          D                                                                G  
If they could only read between the lines  
  
Chorus  
  
Recitation  
C                                                  G  
Cause you know i road  a freight train north to   
                     C  
Detroit city  
  
And after all these years i find i've just been   
                          G  
Wasting my time  
              C                                                                 
               F  
So i think i'll take my foolish pride and put it on a   
  
South bound freight  
          D  
And ride and go back to the loved ones   
          G  
The ones i left behind  
  
Chorus
