Cue Sheet

OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

All four ladies chain about 3/4
Join your hands and circle to the left
Four ladies roll away, circle left around the ring
Left allemande the corner, weave the ring
You weave in and you weave it out
Dosado and promenade
I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh how I want to go home


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The head ladies flutter wheel across now
You sweep 1/4 and California twirl
Spin the top and then
Turn thru my friend, bend the line, forward up and back
Star thru and swing thru one time
Swing the corner girl and promenade
I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh how I want to go home


MIDDLE BREAK   

Sides face grand square
Some folks think I'm big in Detroit City
From the letter that I write they think I'm fine
By day I made the card, by the night the bars
If they could only read between the lines

Four ladies chain go straight across
Chain them back, roll promenade
I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh how I want to go home


FIGURE (ALTERNATE)    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade about halfway
Into the middle and do the right & left thru
Square thru 4 hands, four hands around and then
Dosado the corner Sue
You slide thru, square thru 3 hands
Swing the corner girl and promenade
I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh how I want to go home

Detroit City
 
 

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.
