9 To 5 & Odd Jobs - Detroit City lyrics

You know last night i went to sleep in detroit city
And i dreamed about those cotton fields and home
I dreamed about my mother, dear old papa, sisters and brothers
And i dreamed about a love who's been waiting there so long
I want to go home
I want to go home
Oh how i want to go home
My kinfolks think i'm big in detraoit city
From all the letters that i write, they think i'm fine
By day i make the cars
But, by night i make all the bars
Oh if only they's just read between the lines

They'd know i want to go home
I want to go home
Oh how i want to go home

You know i rode a freight train north to detroit city
And after all these years i find i've been wasting my time
Think i'll put my foolish pride on a southbound train and ride
Heading back to the loved ones i left there waiting behind

Repeat chorus
