CHORUS

[C]  HOMEFOLKS THINK I'M [G]  BIG IN DETROIT [C]  CITY
FROM THE [G]  LETTERS THAT I WRITE THEY THINK I'M[C]  [C7]  FINE

[D]  IF THEY COULD ONLY READ BETWEEN THE LINES  [G]

CHORUS

RECITATION
[C]  CAUSE YOU KNOW I RODE  A FREIGHT TRAIN NORTH TO
[G]  DETROIT CITY  [C]
AND AFTER ALL THESE YEARS I FIND I'VE JUST BEEN
WASTING MY TIME  [G]

SOUTH BOUND FREIGHT
AND RIDE A[D]ND GO BACK TO THE LOVED ONES
THE ONES I[G] LEFT BEHIND
CHORUS
