I’m borrowing a song Spiritual Dragonfly used a few weeks ago on her blog. It’s one of two songs about intriguing women that always tickled my fancy. (The other one is from the opposite end of the world spectrum! I wonder if anyone can guess it before next week. Hint: One-name title.) Just so happens THIS song is by Michael Martin Murphey.
Michael Martin Murphey
Michael Martin Murphey (born March 14, 1945) is an American singer-songwriter best known for writing and performing Western music, country music and popular music. A multiple Grammy nominee, Murphey has six gold albums, including Cowboy Songs, the first album of cowboy music to achieve gold status since Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs by Marty Robbins in 1959. He has recorded the hit singles “Wildfire”, “Carolina in the Pines”, “What’s Forever For”, “A Long Line of Love”, “What She Wants”, and “Don’t Count the Rainy Days”. Murphey is also the author of New Mexico’s state ballad, “The Land of Enchantment”. Murphey has become a prominent musical voice for the Western horseman, rancher, and cowboy.
And the name of the song is (you HAVE to have guessed it)…Wildfire!
