Detroit City
recorded by Mel Tillis
written by Danny Dill and Mel Tillis

G D7 G
Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
D7 G
And I dreamed about those cotton fields and home
C G
I dreamed about my mamma dear old papa sister and brother
A7 D7
And I dreamed about the girl who has been waiting for so long

G G7 C
I wanna go home I wanna go home
G D7 G
Oh how I wanna go home

D7 G
Home folks think I'm big in Detroit City
D7 G
From the letters that I write they think I'm fine
C G
But by day I make the cars by night I'm a makin' the bars
A7 D7
If only they could read between the lines

recitation:

As you know I rode a long black freight train

Way up north to Detroit City

But after all these years I find that well

I've just been wastin' my time

But you know what I think I'm gonna do folks

I'm gonna take my foolish pride

And put it on a Southbound freight and ride

G G7 C
I wanna go home I wanna go home
G D7 G
Oh how I wanna go home

Classic Country Music Lyrics home | Mel Tillis lyrics

Mel Tillis wrote this pretty song, Bobby Bare originally recorded it because of the recitation lines. Mel had concerns about his stuttering when he got to the talking part, but later recorded it and did an outstanding job. Copy and paste Detroit City lyrics and chords, it's really a nice song to do.
