Detroit City Blues

Album: released as a single (1950)
  • Detroit City
    It was the finest in this world
    Yes, Detroit City
    It was the finest in this world
    I'm crazy 'bout that city
    And I love its pretty girls

    When you leave that city
    And you feel this kind of love
    When you leave that city
    And you feel this kind of love
    Just one goes out hasty
    And you find a good place to go

    You don't need a lot of money
    To have a real good time
    You don't need a lot of money
    To have a real good time
    Just be a real good sport
    And everything will turn out fine Writer/s: ANTOINE DOMINO, DAVE BARTHOLOMEW
