I wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
And I dreamed about those cottonfields and home
I dreamed about my mother dear old papa sister and brother
I dreamed about that boy who's been waiting for so long

Homefolks think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think I'm fine
But by day I make the cars by night I sing in bars
If only they could read between the lines

Cause you know I rode the freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find I've just been wastin' my time
So I just think I'll take my foolish pride
And put on a Southbound freight and ride
