   dreamed    about that     girl,         who's been     waiting     for     so   long.       I  wanna   go

[Chorus]                      ... as above ...

[Verse]                       ... as above ...

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,
by night I make the bars
If only they could read between the lines

[Chorus]                      ... as above ...

[Verse]                       ... spoken ...

Cause you know, I rode a freight train north to Detroit City
And after all these years I find that I've just been wastin' my time
So I just think I'll take my foolish pride, and
put it on a southbound freight and ride
Go on back to the loved ones,
The ones that I left waitin' so far behind

[Chorus]                      ... as above ...
