The Ring of Fire

"Ring Of Fire"
(originally by Anita 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 as 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.
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 as 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 as 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.

I'm sorry to dispute.
Anita released this song written by her sister June but it wasn't called "Ring of Fire".
Anita's version was titled "Love's Fiery Ring".

Get your country music right woman!!!

It's just such a well known story.
June wrote it for Anita
Claimed she was inspired by a phrase in an Elizabeathean poem
Anita recorded it all folksy and it didn't hit
Johnny recorded it with the mariachi sound and the Carter Sisters sang backup
Johnny's first wife Vivian claims June never wrote it - says Johnny wrote it when he was drunk and stoned and it's about a woman's vagina
Then there was the whole curfuffle when it was wanted to be used for the hemorrhoid commercial and one of Johnny's kids objected

Anywho - good song. Lots of controversy.

Since you are so into music these days, you should check out the Flying Pickets version of the Yazoo hit "Only You". Why? Just because. It's one of my favorites and I have it playing now 〰❗

It won't play for me.

Is it this one?

Sounds really good on the regular stereo turned up loud.

 this is so funny, i live about 35 minutes away from the house of cash museum in hendersonville tn. Johnny and June  didn't live far from there. i grew up listening to this song and when i was a little girl i thought he was talking about hell, we wern't allowed to say hell to mom or dad so i never questioned what i grew up thinking. anyway annaleigh you giving the history of the song answered a question that i have wondered about for about 40 years.  thanks i guess lol.
