If only they could read between the lines

spoken

I rode a freight train north to Detroit city

After all these years I've been wasting my time

I'll take my foolish pride,

on a southbound freight and ride

Go on back to the ones,

I've left waitin' so far behind

I want to go home, I want to go home
A chord diagramE MajorE         A chord diagramB7B7         A chord diagramE MajorE
Oh, how I want to go home
