Circle left
*Last night I went to sleep in Detroit City
I dreamed about the old folks there at home

Left allemande the corner, turn thru and then
Left allemande and weave the ring
I want to go home, I want to go home
Dosado and promenade on home
I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh Lord, I want to go home


*Home folks think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letters that I write they think I'm fine

FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads promenade you go halfway
Lead to the right and circle to a line
Curlique and then release the column go
Double pass thru and track 2
Swing thru, turn thru
Swing the corner girl and promenade
I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh Lord, I want to go home

Detroit City Lyrics ID: 1141

You know last night I went to sleep in Detroit city
And I dreamed about those cotton fields and home
I dreamed about my mother, dear old papa, sisters and brothers
And I dreamed about a love who's been waiting there so long

I want to go home
I want to go home
Oh how I want to go home
My kinfolks think I'm big in Detroit city
From all the letters that I write, they think I'm fine
By day I make the cars
But, by night I make all the bars
Oh if only they's just read between the lines

They'd know I want to go home
I want to go home
Oh how I want to go home

You know I rode a freight train north to Detroit city
And after all these years I find I've been wasting my time
Think I'll put my foolish pride on a southbound train and ride
Heading back to the loved ones I left there waiting behind

Repeat Chorus

Lyrics by Danny Dill and Mel Tillis.
Recorded by Dolly Parton.
