Saturday’s Song: Ring Of Fire

Today’s song was the suggestion of my favorite stepmom supporter, Heather Hetchler, of Cafe Smom.  During the years I spent as the partner of a divorced dad, Heather was both an inspiration and a lifeline.  If you’re a stepmom or even a biomom, Heather offers heartfelt encouragement and perspective.  She believes stepmoms are the heart of a blended family and she lives her role to the fullest.  I’m happy to serve up one of her favorites today… here’s Johnny Cash’s Ring of Fire.

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

Live performance, 1968:

Ring Of Fire Lyrics (written by Merle Kilgore and June Carter)

Love is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
When hearts like ours meet
{ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/johnny-cash-lyrics/ring-of-fire-lyrics.html }
I fell for you like a child
Oh, but the fire went wild

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire

And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire
The ring of fire
The ring of fire

    Thanks Tara! Grew up listening to his music via my parents and ever since Walk the Line….. I just love his voice and the passion with which he sings. He tells a story with every song. Maybe I really connect with being genuine about sharing your story.

    Your words humble me and I’m grateful to call you friend. Greatest gift of social media is meeting and connecting with wonderful people like you.

    xoxo Heather
