A Dose of a Young George Strait Singing His Second No. 1


If you are still crying over CMA broadcast not showcasing enough classic country artists or you just want to get over the madness of the world, you need to breathe slowly, steadily and just get through the day with a young and swooning George Strait singing ‘A Fire I Can’t Put Out.’

George Strait singing A Fire I Cannot Put Out

George Strait, A Fire I Can’t Put Out

The King of Country bagged his first number one with ‘Fool Hearted Memory’ and while there was never an assurance that he would last long after his stunning introduction to the world. The critics were proven wrong when George Strait proved that 1983 was a good year to be George Strait as he scored his second number one with ‘A Fire I Can’t Put Out’

This magnum opus penned by Darry Staedtler is a man’s poetry containing the memories of parting with a woman he loves. It’s a classic story of ‘how to start moving on if I don’t know how’ which sweeps off anyone’s feet who can relate to the pain of not being able to move on.


“A Fire I Can’t Put Out” Lyrics

I’m finding out how hot an old flame can burn.
You’re a feeling I haven’t forgot, the love I can’t unlearn.
You’ve become a memory I can’t live without.
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out.

I don’t know how to handle the dream you left behind.
It’s like a lighted candle burning up my mind.
At least I’m happy knowing what love is all about.
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out.

Embers to ashes, that’s how it should be.
You’d think by now my heart would know, and it could set you free.
The things I’ve tried, the tears I’ve cried, I guess there’s no doubt
You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out.

You’ll always be a fire I can’t put out.


cma, George Strait
