Detroit City

Artist: Tom Jones (peak Billboard position # 27 in 1967)
previously a # 16 hit for Bobby Bare
Words and Music by Danny Dill and Mel Tillis

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 whos been waitin?for so long

I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home

Home folks think Im big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think Im 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 Ive just been wastin?my time
You know what Im gonna do?
Im gonna take my foolish pride
Get it on a southbound freight and let it ride
Im 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 [Cant 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

FADE Hmm, I wanna go home
