Detroit City by Bobby Bare – Modern Song #1

New book by Bob Dylan is The Philosophy of Modern Song – essays on 65 songs he admires. The next 65 days I’m gonna listen/revisit one a day starting today with ‘Detroit City’ by Bobby Bare.

Listening to ‘Detroit City’ reminds me that probably a quarter of all the country/Americana/folk songs ever written are about home, sense of home, finding a way back home.
