                Detroit City:Tom Jones.
#27 in 1967.

#1.
E                     B                E
Last night, I went to sleep in Detroit City.
  B                                    E
I dreamed about them cotton fields and home.
E A                                 E
I dreamed about my Mother, dear old Pappy,
                          F#
sister and brother..and I dreamed about that girl,
           B
who`s been waiting for so long.

CHORUS:
B          E                A
I wanna go home..I wanna go home.
E         B        E
Oh, how I wanna go home.

#2.
E                    B              E
Home folks think I`m big in Detroit City.
E                       B                          E
(Yes, they do.)
       A                            E
But by day, I make the cars, and by night, I make the bars.
   F#                               B
If only they could read between the lines.

SPOKEN:Ad lib.
B
Cause you know I rode a freight train north,
           E
to Detroit City.
E         B
And after all these years I find, I`ve just been 
           E
wasting my time.
                                 A
You know what I`m gonna do?..I`m gonna take my foolish pride,
            E
get it on a southbound freight and let it ride.
    F#                                   B
I`m gonna go back to the loved ones..the ones that I left

waiting so far behind.

CHORUS:
B          E                A
I wanna go home..I wanna go home.
E         B        E
Oh, how I wanna go home.
(Can`t you hear me?)

CHORUS:
B          E                A
I wanna go home..I wanna go home.
E         B        E
Oh, how I wanna go home.
(Somebody help me!)

OUTRO:
B          E                A
I wanna go home..I wanna go home.
E         B        E
Oh, how I wanna go home.


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
