(That's right, Leroy, tune it up with the drum..that sounds real 

 good.)



(Chorus)
E                                                     A
I don't wanna go home (why should I) I don't wanna go home.
E      B           E
Nobody wants to go home..I'll tell you why.



(Verse 1)
E                   B              E          B
Last night I took a nap in Detroit City and I dreamed about my papa's 
           E
old cotton patch.
        A                  E                             Gb
My poor back was breaking, both my knees was aching, the redbugs kept 
                B
on bitin' but I didn't have time to scratch.



(Chorus)
                 E                                    A
I don't wanna go home (why should I) I don't wanna go home.
E      B           E
Nobody wants to go home.

(Well, heck-fire, Leroy, I thought you had it in tune there once.
 You got a little slippage.)


(Verse 2)
B                         Gb              B           Gb
Well, Bobby I hear you're leaving Detroit City, going back to the 
         B
hills in Tennessee.
         Em             E             B                    Db
But I'll still make the cars and I'll still make the bars, lots of 
                      Gb
crazy little women to keep me company.



    B                   Gb                            B
You see, I work in this automobile factory in Detroit City..in the 

shock exsorber division.
        Gb                                   B
Did you ever look inside one of them shock exsorbers? (No!)
B                                        E
Well, they got a little ole round washer right in the top of 'em.
(Yeah?)
                                                 B
And my job is cram this little round washer into every one of them 
                     Db
shock exsorbers that comes down that long conveyor belt. (Yeah?)
        Gbm                               Gb
Heck, I only been there six years and I'm already the number one 
                      Gbm                  Gb
washer crammer in the whole shock exsorber division. (That's right!)




(Chorus)
E                B                                    E
I don't wanna go home (why should I) I don't wanna go home.
B      Gb       B
Nobody wants go home.



(Outro)
