The Home Fire Lyrics

Pardon the smile on my face my friend
Dreamin' of reachin' my journeys end
I'm headin' straight for my hearts desire
Gee, it's good to know I'm near the home fire

All of the folks that I love are there
I got a date with my favorite chair
With every step every hope grows higher
Didn't know how much I missed the home fire

The noises, the TV, the rusty old pipes
The cat always teasin' my dog
The neighbors, the quarrels, the screaming of kids
For the first time in years, I'll sleep like a log

Heaven is waiting for me, my friend
Seven or eight dreams around the bend
And if you ever in town inquire
We'll be glad to have you share the home fire

Yes, the noises, the TV, the rusty old pipes
The cat always teasin' my dog
The neighbors, the quarrels, the scream of the kids
For the first time in years, I'll sleep like a log

Heaven is waiting for me, my friend
Seven or eight dreams around the bend
And if you ever in town inquire
We'll be glad to have you share the home fire
We'll be glad to have you share the home fire
