Detroit City
written by Dill/Tillis


     E               B7               E
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
  B7                                   E
I dreamed about them cotton fields and home
  A                                 E
I dreamed about my mother, dear old Pappy, sister and brother
      F#7                               B
And I dreamed about the girl who's been waitin' for so long

I wanna go home
I wanna go home
B7        A       E
Oh how I wanna go home


Home folks think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think I'm 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 off to Detroit City
And after all these years I find I'm just wastin' time, you know what I"m gonna do?
I'm gonna take my foolish pride, get it on a southbound freight and let it ride
I'm gonna go back to the loved ones, the ones I left waiting so far behind

CHORUS (repeat out)
