Detroit City  Tom Jones

[E]Last night, I went to [B]sleep in Detroit [E]City.
I [B]dreamed about them cotton fields and [E]home.
[E]I [A]dreamed about my Mother, dear old [E]Pappy,
sister and brother..and I [F#]dreamed about that girl,
who`s been [B]waiting for so long.
[B]I wanna go [E]home..I wanna go [A]home.
[E]Oh, how I [B]wanna go [E]home.
( Tab from: )

[E]Home folks think I`m [B]big in Detroit [E]City.
[E]From the letters that I [B]write, they think I`m just [E]fine.
(Yes, they do.)
But by [A]day, I make the cars, and by [E]night, I make the bars.
If [F#]only they could read between the [B]lines.
SPOKEN:Ad lib.
[B]Cause you know I rode a freight train north,
to Detroit [E]City.
[E]And after [B]all these years I find, I`ve just been
wasting my [E]time.
You know what I`m gonna do?..I`m [A]gonna take my foolish pride,
get it on a [E]southbound freight and let it ride.
I`m [F#]gonna go back to the loved ones..the [B]ones that I left
waiting so far behind.
[B]I wanna go [E]home..I wanna go [A]home.
[E]Oh, how I [B]wanna go [E]home.
(Can`t you hear me?)
[B]I wanna go [E]home..I wanna go [A]home.
[E]Oh, how I [B]wanna go [E]home.
(Somebody help me!)
[B]I wanna go [E]home..I wanna go [A]home.
[E]Oh, how I [B]wanna go [E]home.
A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
