    Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
    I dreamed about them cotton fields of home
    I dreamed about my mother, dear old pappy, sister and brother
    And I dreamed about the girl who's been waitin' for so long

    I want to go home
    I want to go home
    Oh, how I want to 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 north to Detroit City
    And after all these years I find I've just been wastin' my 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

    I want to go home, yeah
    I want to go home
    Oh, how I want to go home (Can't you hear me?)

    I want to go home
    Whoa, baby I want to go home
    Oh, how I want to go home (Somebody help me)

    I want to go home, yeah
    I want to go home, whoa oh
    Oh, how I want to go home

    Hmm, I want to go home...
