Bobby Bare - "Detroit City"

DETROIT CITY by Bobby Bare

Last night I went to sleep in Detroit city
And I dreamed about those cotton fields and home
I dreamed about my mamma
Dear old papa sister and brother
Dreamed about that girl who has been waiting for so long

I want to go home
I want to go home
Oh Lord,I want to go home

Some 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
By night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines

Repeat Chorus
