Lyrics

It was July hot in Georgia in 1942 All the men were off to war and the women had nothing to do I was sixteen and hungry for my first taste of love When I brought the groceries to her door I didn't know how close I was Her long blond hair was flowing and she smelled like sweet perfume When I laid the groceries down she said you don't have to leave so soon A woman sure gets lonely when her man goes off to fight She reached out for my trembling hand as teardrops filled her eyes then she said War is hell on the homefront God only knows what a woman goes through She still needs what a man that's gone can't do I can't fight this fire alone stay with me until it's gone Oh war is hell on the homefront too

It was July hot inside me as she lead me to her bedroom door The satin sheets and pleasures I never knew I could feel before My first taste of loving was everything that 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 that I'll remember most Is the way she turned his picture over Face down on the table by her bed then she said War is hell on the homefront God only knows what a woman goes through She still needs what a man that's gone can't do I can't fight this fire alone stay with me until it's gone Oh war is hell on the homefront too War is hell on the homefront God only knows what a woman goes through She still needs what a man that's gone can't do I can't fight this fire alone stay with me until it's gone Oh war is hell on the homefront too
