         DETROIT CITY   Bobby Bare
 C                     G7               C
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
         G7                                 C   C7
And I dreamed about the cotton fields and home
     F                            C
I dreamed about mother dear old papa sister and brother
         D7
And I dreamed about the  girl 
             G7
who's been waiting for so long
CHORUS:
            C   C7              F    Bb  F
I wanna go home     I wanna go home
C          G7       C   F  C     
Oh, how I wanna go home

C                      G7             C
Home folks thinks I'm big in Detroit City
           G7                                 C  C7
From the letters that I write they think I'm fine
        F
But by day I make the cars
     C
By night I make the bars
    D7                                 G7
If only they could  read between the lines.

go to chorus, then recitation


Recitation

Cause you know I rode a freight train noth to Detroit City

And after all these years I find 

I've just been wasting my time

So I just think I'll take my foolish pride 

And put in on the south-bound freight and ride

And  go on back to the loved ones

The ones that I left waiting so far behind.

go to chorus
