“We’ve Got A Good Fire Goin’”: Don Williams’ No.3 Single in 1986

Don Williams

The “Gentle Giant” didn’t only place 17 No.1 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. He also topped several songs on the country charts and if it’s Top 10 that we’re speaking of, then he definitely has a lot. A good specimen is “We’ve Got A Fire Goin’,” which made it to top 3 in 1986.

And believe it or not, only four of Williams’ singles didn’t make it to top 10.

Furthermore, lend your ears, for this song of Don Williams will definitely backtrack you to his stardom. The time when he was still performing on stages and concerts. Also, the time when he’s with us catering his works of art. But as of now, let’s recollect his memories through his No.3 single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in 1986.

We’ve Got A Good Fire Goin’…

Dave Loggins pooled resources for “We’ve Got A Good Fire Goin'” possible. It was released in January 1986. In addition, the song was the first single under Williams’ album “New Moves.” It was the same year wherein William’s recorded and released his final No.1 song entitled “Heartbeat In The Darkness.” Also, the song was part of the same album.

The Lyrics…

There’s a storm rollin’ over the hill

And the willow trees are blowin’

I’m standin’ here starin’ out the window

Safe and warm

I feel her put her arms around me

And its a good-feelin‘ I’m knowin’

Oh, I’ve got a good woman and we’ve got a good fire goin’

We’ve got a feast on the supper table

Bread for breakin’

A blessing from the Lord for makin’ me such a fortunate man

The light of my life in the candle

Her face a glowin’

Oh, I’ve got a good woman and we’ve got a good fire goin’

So let it rain

(the rain fall down)

Let it rain

It won’t do nothin’ but kindle a never ending flame

Let it rain

(the rain fall down)

Let it rain til mornin’

Oh, I’ve got a good woman and we’ve got a good fire goin’

Now there’s a hard rain fallin’ on the roof

Coffee comin’ from the kitchen

I’m lyin’ here listenin’ to the ceiling on the living room floor

I feel her lay down beside me

My love is overflowin’

Oh, I’ve got a good woman and we’ve got a good fire goin’
