Keep The Home Fires Burning

I've been driving through the Rockies admiring the view
All the peaks and valleys keep reminding me of you
Wipers on this diesel are keeping steady time
Tapping out the rhythm of what I've got in mind
I was born to ride the highway so I tend to forget
By the end of every journey I wish I'd never left

Keep the home fire burning
Honey leave a light
Keep the home fire burning, baby
I'll be home tonight

One more cup of coffee keep my rig between the lines
Smoke a cigarette and read the road signs
That one says soft shoulder, man, you ain't lying
I can't think of nothing but you, what's the use of trying
I'm getting off next exit, I'm calling you collect
Daddy's coming home, you know what to expect

Keep the home fire burning
Honey leave a light
Keep the home fire burning, baby
I'll be home tonight

You keep me coming back for more
Welcome arms and open door
On my knees down on the floor
I thank my stars and praise the Lord

You ain't cut out for the kitchen
I know that's understood
But when it comes to cooking
I know you're really good
So keep the home fire burning, baby
I'll be home tonight

Keep the home fire burning
Honey leave a light
Keep the home fire burning, baby
I'll be home tonight

Keep the home fire burning
Honey leave a light
Keep the home fire burning, baby
I'll be home tonight
