Released in May 1985, “The Fireman” was written by Mack Vickery and Wayne Kemp. This song was recorded by the king of country music, George Strait. It was the third and final single from his album Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind. It reached the No. 5 on the country music chart in the United States and No. 10 in Canada.
In the song, a narrator is a man with charm and wit. Those traits were all about cooling down any angry woman. He tends to go after women that have just been in fights with their significant other or have recently experienced a break-up. He also heads over to his friend’s place to “cool off” the friend’s woman with “a little mouth to mouth”.
