E
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City,
                                                A
 and I dreamed about those cotton fields at home.

 I dreamed about my mother,
            E
 dear old Papa, Sister and brother,

         F# 
I dreamed about that girl
                B7
 who's been waiting for so long.
                E                           A
 I wanna go home, I wanna go home,
B7                       E
 oh, how I wanna go home!
 E
Home, folks think I'm big in Detroit City.
                                                A
 From the letters that I write, they think I'm fine.

 But by day, I make the cars,


        E
 and by night I make the bars,
     F#                                  B7
 If only they could read between the lines!
 
[Spoken]
 E
You know,
 I rode a freight train north to Detroit City.
 After all these years,
                                      A
 I find that I've just been wastin' my time.
 So I just think I'll take my foolish pride,
          E
 put on a south bound freight and ride,
        F#
 Goin' back to the love ones,
                B7
 The ones I left waitin' so far behind.
        
              E                 A
I wanna go home, I wanna go home,
B7                      E
 oh, how I want to go home.
