Detroit City  Bobby Bare

[C]I WANNA GO HOME,[F]I WANNA GO [C] HOME,
OH HOW I[G]WANNA GO HOME[C]

[C]LAST NIGHT I WENT TO [G] SLEEP IN DETROIT CITY[C]
AND I DREAME[G]D ABOUT THE COTTON FIELDS AND HOME[C]
[F]I DREAMED ABOUT MY MOTHER, DEAR OLD [C] PAPA,

SISTER AND BROTHER
AND I DREAMED[D] ABOUT THE GIRL
WHO'S BEEN WAITING [G] FOR SO LONG[G7]

CHORUS

[C]HOMEFOLKS THINK I'M BIG [G]IN DETROIT CITY[C]
FROM THE LETTER[G]S THAT I WRITE THEY THINK I'M [C]FINE
BUT BY [F]DAY I MAKE THE CARS,BY NIGHT I MAKE THE BARS[C]
IF THEY CO[D]ULD ONLY READ BETWEEN THE LINES[G]

RECITATION

[C]CAUSE YOU KNOW I ROAD  A FREIGHT TRAIN
[G]NORTH TO DETROIT CITY[C]
AND AFTER [G]ALL THESE YEARS I FIND I'VE JUST BEEN
WASTING MY TIME[G]
[C]  SO I THINK I'LL[F] TAKE MY FOOLISH PRIDE AND PUT IT ON A
SOUTH BOUND FREIGHT
TAKE A[D]RIDE AND GO BACK TO THE LOVED ONES
THE ONES I[G] LEFT BEHIND
CHORUS
