She Keeps the Home Fires Burning
recorded by Ronnie Milsap
written by Dennis Morgan, Mike Reid, Don Pfrimmer

Crack of dawn I hit the road  set my shoulders for the heavy load
       C                         G
Coffee leaking through the paper sack
The foreman says I'm late again  he can't stand it when I only grin
            C                              G
He's got me eight hours she's got me after that
I can't wait 'til it's quitting time
She got something cooking for me tonight
              G    C     D7
She keeps the home fires burning
          Am                        G
While I'm out earning a living in a world
       C                     D7
That's known for its pouring rain
              G    C     D7
She keeps the home fires burning
             Am       D7          C                  G
Ooh and it's her warm loving that keeps me returning again
Out of gas just my luck four bald tires on my pickup truck
        C                   G
No more credit on my credit card
When I come home and hit that door I remember what
These aching arms are for
         C                             G
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

Repeat #2
