Cue Sheet


1st & 3rd promenade around the outside
Halfway round lead right and circle there
Spread on out and form a line, go up and back in time
Two ladies chain across the ring and turn the girls so fine
Diagonally the end two ladies chain now
Rock forward 8 and back and then star thru
Dive thru and circle 4, halfway round and then no more
Frontier whirl and swing the corner, promenade and sing
I want to go home, I want to go home
Oh, how I want to go home


Four ladies chain across the inside
Turn these girls, chain back a dopaso
Turn your corner right hand round, turn partner left around
Gents star right in the center, turn it once around
Pass your own, left allemande
Come back home, swing and stay there at 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.
