She Keeps The Home Fires Burning - Lyrics

Crack of dawn I hit the road
Set my shoulders for the heavy load
Coffee leaking through the paper sack

The foreman says, "I'm late again"
He can't stand it when I only grin
He's got me eight hours, she's got me after that

I can't wait 'til it's quittin' time
She got something cookin' for me tonight

She keeps the home fires burning
While I'm out earning a living in a world
That's known for its pouring rain

She keeps the home fires burning
Ooh, and it's her warm loving
That keeps me returning again and again

Out of gas, just my luck
Four bald tires on my pickup truck
No more credit on my credit card

When I come home and hit that door
I remember what these aching arms are for
She's my one light when the world goes dark

Tomorrow it's the same old grind
But she'll be burning in my mind

She keeps the home fires burning
While I'm out earning a living in a world
That's known for its pouring rain

She keeps the home fires burning
Ooh, and it's her warm loving
That keeps me returning again

She keeps the home fires burning
Ooh, and it's her warm loving
That keeps me returning again
(Home fires burning)
While I'm out earning a living in a world
That's known for its pouring rain
She keeps the home fires burning
Ooh, and it's her warm loving
That keeps me returning again
(She keeps the home fires burning)
While I'm out earning a living in a world
That's known for its pouring rain
She keeps the home
