1. Last night I went to sleep in Detroit city,

                A                               A7                        D

    and I dreamed about those cotton fields back home.

          G                                                    D

    I dreamed about my mama, dear old papa,  sister and brother,

        E                                                         A                   A7

    dreamed about that girl who has been waiting for so long.

2. Some folks think I'm big in Detroit city,

                   A                   A7                          D

    from the letters that I write, they think I'm fine.

                 G                                    D

    But by day I make the cars, by night I make the bars,

        E                                                   A   - A7

    if only they could read between the lines.

 

                     D                           G      D                A              D

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, oh Lord, I wanna go home.

                                                  G      D                A              D

I wanna go home, I wanna go home, oh Lord, I wanna go home.
