Detroit City

Bobby Bare

 CC7FFM
I WANNA GO  HOME,       I WANNA GO   HOME,    
 CGC
 OH HOW I   WANNA GO   HOME

 CGC
 LAST NIGHT I WENT TO SLEEP IN DETROIT CITY
 GCC7
AND I DREAMED ABOUT THE COTTON FIELDS AND HOME                          
 FC
 I DREAMED ABOUT MY MOTHER, DEAR OLD PAPA SISTER
 DG
AND BROTHER AND I   DREAMED ABOUT THE GIRL WHO'S BEEN    WAITING FOR SO LONG

CHORUS

 CGC
   HOMEFOLKS THINK I'M   BIG IN DETROIT   CITY
 GCC7
FROM THE   LETTERS THAT I WRITE THEY THINK I'M    FINE
 FC
   BUT BY DAY I MAKE THE CARS BY   NIGHT I MAKE THE BARS
 DG
   IF THEY COULD ONLY READ BETWEEN THE LINES  

CHORUS

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