      About "Detroit City"

      Lyrics for Ferlin Husky - "Detroit City"

      Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
      And I dreamed about the cottonfields and home
      I dreamed about my mother dear old papa sister and brother
      I dreamed about that girl who's been waiting for so long
      I want to go home I want to go home oh Lord I want to go home
      Now 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 at 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
      I rode the freight train north to Detroit City
      And after all these years I find that I've just been wastin' my time
      So I think I'll take my foolish pride get on a Southbound freight and ride
      And go on back to the loved ones all the loved ones that I left waiting so far behind
      I want to go home I want to go home oh Lord I want to go home
      Oh Lord I want to go home
