Tom Jones - Detroit City
Tekst en muziek: Danny Dill en Mel Tillis
(1967)






Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
I dreamed about them cotton fields in home
I dreamed about my mother
Dear old papa, sister and brother
And I dreamed about the girl
Who’s been waiting for so long



I wanna go home, I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna 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 south bound freight and let it ride
I’m gonna go back to the love ones
The ones I left waiting so far behind



I wanna go home, yeah
I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home
Can’t you hear me



I wanna go home, oh baby
I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home
Somebody help me



I wanna go home, yeah
I wanna go home
Oh, how I wanna go home
Oh



I wanna go home
