I want to go home, I want to go home, Oh Lord, I want to go home. 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, sister and brother, And I dreamed about that girl, who's been waitin' for so long I want to go home, I want to go home, Oh Lord, I want to go home Home folks 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, and by night I make the bars, If only they could read between the lines I want to go home, I want to go home, Oh Lord, I want to go home SPOKEN: You know, I rode a freight train north to Detroit city, And after all these years I find I've just been wasting my time, So I think I'll take my foolish pride, put it on a southbound freight and ride, Go on back to the ones I left, who've been waitin' for so long I want to go home, I want to go home, Oh Lord, I want to go home.
