Detroit City chords
Bobby Bare 1963 (Danny Dill / Mel Tillis)

E

  E              E7             A
I want to go home, I want to go home
E         B7         E
Oh, how I want to go home

E                    B7               E
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit city
      B7                                    E    E7
And I dreamed about those cotton fields and home
  A                
I dreamed about my mother, 
         E
dear old papa, sister and brother,
      F#         
And I dreamed about that girl,
           B7
whose been waitin' for so long

  E              E7             A
I want to go home, I want to go home
E         B7         E
Oh, how I want to go home

     E               B7             E
Home folks think I'm big in Detroit city
         B7                                  E   E7
From the letters that I write they think I'm fine
       A
But by day I make the cars,
   E
by night I make the bars
   F#                               B7
If only they could read between the lines

spoken

I rode a freight train north to Detroit city

After all these years I've been wasting my time

I'll take my foolish pride,

on a southbound freight and ride

Go on back to the ones,

I've left waitin' so far behind

  E              E7             A
I want to go home, I want to go home
E         B7         E
Oh, how I want to go home
