Words & Music: George David Weiss & George Douglas
arranged by Don 'donnie joe' Sweeney


Pardon the smile on my face, my friend
Dreaming of reachin' my journey's end
I'm headin' straight for my heart's desire
Ain't it good to know I'm near the home fires

All of the folks that I know are there
And I've got a date with my fave'rit chair
With every step how my heart grows higher
Didn't know how much I missed the home fire

Well, 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

Cause heaven is waiting for me, my friend
7 or 8 drinks around the bend
So if you're ever in town inquire
Cause we'll be glad to have you here in the home Fire
