It was July hot in Georgia in 1942
All the men were off to war and
the woman had nothing to do
I was sixteen and hungry looking for
my first taste of love
When I brought the groceries to the door
I didn't know how close I was


Her long blond hair was flowing
and she smelled like sweet perfume
When I laid her groceries down she said
you don't have to leave so soon
A woman sure gets lonely when
a men gone off to fight
She reached up for my trembling hand
as tear drops filled her eyes
Then she said

War is hell on the home front too
God only knows what a woman goes though
She still needs what a
man that's gone can't do
I can't fight this fire along
Stay with me until it's gone
Ooh war is hell on the home front too

It was July hot in side me as she
lead me to the bed room door
With satin sheets and pleasure
I never knew I could feel before
My first taste of lovin' was
everything it should have been
When a woman's fighting loneliness
it's a battle she can't win

I'll always remember what
she did and what she said
But the one thing I remember most was
The way she turned his picture over
Face bound on the table by
her bed and now she says

War is hell on the home front too
God only knows what a woman goes though
She still needs what
a man that's gone can't do
I can't fight this fire along
Stay with me until it's gone
Ooh war is hell on the home front too

War is hell on the home front too
God only knows what a woman goes though
She still needs what
a man that's gone can't do
I can't fight this fire along
Stay with me until it's gone
Ooh war is hell on the home front too

War is hell on the home front too
God only knows what a woman goes though
She still needs what a
man that's gone can't do
I can't fight this fire along
Stay with me until it's gone
Ooh war is hell on the home front too
