    Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
    And I dreamed about those 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 wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home

    Homefolks 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

    Cause you know I rode the freight train north to Detroit City
    And after all these years I find I was just wastin' my time
    So I just think I'll take my foolish pride
    And put on a Southbound freight and ride
    And go on back to the loved ones I left waiting far behind

    I wanna go home I wanna go home oh how I wanna go home

    (Down in Dyess Arkansas and that part of the delta land where I grew up
    I did my earliest singing and I learned my first songs
    While picking or chopping cotton out in a cotton patch
    Seems somebody was always singing while they worked
    To help make the day go a little bit faster
    I can remember my sister Louisie out in the cottonfields
    She would keep us all cheered up by singing gospel songs and the hits of the days
    And being a few years older than I was she'd teach me songs she'd say
    I'm going to sing you this song three times
    And then see if you're listening you sing it back to me
    Sometimes she'd be way down the row picking ahead of me
    And while she was waiting for me to catch up I could hear her singing)
