Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

home fires burning  Ronnie Milsap

[G]Crack of dawn I hit the road[C], [G]set my shoulders for the heavy load
Coffee l[C]eaking through the paper [G]sac[C]k[G]
[G]The foreman says I'm late again,[C] h[G]e can't stand it when I only grin
He's got me [C]eight hours, she's got me after [G]that[C] [G]
I [D]can't wait 'til it's quittin' time
[D]She got something cookin' for me tonight.
She keeps the [G]home[C]fires [D]burning
While I'm out ea[Am7]rning a living in a [G]world
That's k[C]nown for its pouring [D]rain
She keeps the [G]home[C]fires b[D]urning
Ooh and it's [Am7]her warm loving that [D]keeps me returning [G]agai[C]n[G]
[G]  [C]  [D]  [G]  [G]Out of gas, just my luck[C], [G]four bald tires on my pickup truck
No more [C]credit on my credit [G]card[C] [G]
[G]When I come home and hit that door I remember what these aching arms are
She's my [C]one light when the world goes d[G]ar[C]k[G]
[D]Tomorrow it's the same old grind
But she'll be burning in my mind
Instrumental- G C D C G C D
Chorus-only last two lines
chorus-all of it and fade out
Jason A. Wendtland
