    Lyrics

    Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
    And I dreamed about those cottonfields back home
    I dreamed about my mama, dear old papa, sister and brother
    And I dreamed about the boy that's been waiting for so long

    I wanna go home, I wanna go home
    Oh, how I want to go home

    Home folks think I'm a big deal in Detroit City
    From the letters that I write, they think I'm doin' fine
    But by day I make the cars, and by night I sing in bars
    If only they could read 'tween the lines

    I wanna go home, I wanna go home
    Oh, how I want to go home

    Rode a Greyhound bus way up north to Detroit City
    It seems like after all this time, maybe I've just been wasting mine
    Think I'm gonna take my foolish pride, put it on southbound dog and ride
    Looking for that boy who's been waiting for so long

    I wanna go home, I wanna go home
    Oh, how I want to go home

    I wanna go home, I wanna go home
    Oh, how I want to go home

    Go home
