George Strait - I'll Always Remember You Lyrics

It all started back in 1981.
Our life together had just begun.
I didn't know what my future would hold,
But you gave me a chance,
So I set out on the road.

It wasn't easy going then.
There were times I almost threw that old towel in,
But you kept callin me back to the stage,
And I finally found my place in each and every face.

I'm not sayin I'm through by any means.
There's still things that I want to say and do.
I hope you won't forget me, cause we've shared a lot dreams.
And just know that I'll always remember you.

When I first set out on the road, I figured
I had maybe 5 good years to sing my songs for you folks.
Well, it's goin on 30 now
And I still love it just as much as I ever did.
When I hear that announcer say my name,
And I walk through those curtains
And see your smilin' faces,
My feet don't touch the ground again
Til I walk out and get back on that bus that got me here.
I don't know how many more years I've got left to do this,
But I figure a few.
I do want you to know, though,
That when I do walk off this stage for the last time,
And I'm all settled in, away from all this,
You won't be far away.
I'll still hear your screams and cheers in my mind.
And I'll always remember you.

I'm not sayin I'm through by any means.
Cause there's still things that I want to say and do.
I hope you won't forget me, cause we've shared a lot dreams.
And just know that I'll always remember you.

You've pulled me through some hard times.
Hope I've pulled you through a few.
And just know that I'll always remember you.

  14. jflo1958

    I never liked country till George Strait. In 1981 when I heard 'Unwound' I never went back to the 70"s soft rock I listen to. All these years he has kept up with changes country music has taken on and still Holden strong, but the most important part he never let his fame ruin his life he has stayed true to one woman and one woman only. I love you George, you had me at "unwound". I will always remember you and as long as I can hear i'll be listening to you sing

  15. Jeanne Ruh

    You'll never be gone or ever forgotten. You have molded my life with your beautiful melodies...straight from the heart <3

  16. Mitch Cota

  33. Sylvia Payton

    A very interesting mini-autobiographical anecdote from Country Musician King George Strait!.

  34. ejiro kirishima

    This was played at my friend Shawn's funeral today. So beautiful 👌💖

  35. Sylvia Payton

    George Strait: "I Got A Car."

  36. Sylvia Payton

    Good morning, "Sunny" it's me, "Moon Beam." I hope you got my message to you on Facebook yester-evening. God bless, Amen.

  37. Sylvia Payton

    What can I say when I have "put my foot in my mouth" already?. King George Harvey Strait of Poteet, Texas is still the King of Country Music because he is the Singer, Songwriter, Actor, and music producer of all time. Most of all, I like King George Strait because he believes in God and his wife, Norma, is my best friend.

  38. chivas tv

  42. John D. Rockefeller

    I love you George, you were singing when I was born in 91 and I have listen to you ever since I continue to still, you are indeed the king of country music and you will forever be the king of crushing music. We all love you and may God continue to bless you. You're a true once-in-a-lifetime talent.

  43. Kansas

    Why does this song make me so sad?

  44. Kyndal

    This song reminds me of my two very very special cousins Mark and Morgan, they're headed to collage:( I am happy for my cousins but, I will miss them. it's bitter sweet knowing watching your cousin's head off to collage. But I know they will be great. But still it's hard letting my cousins go.

  45. justess martin

    This man is what country music is all about! He never sold out (like Reba McEntire) just to do what sells. He never compromised and therefore, never lost his integrity as an artist!

  46. Hugo Garza

    For my beautiful grandmother, rest in peace and I'll always remember you :'(

  47. Guy29 ツ

  59. kyla hawk

    King George! I am 34 years old and as far back as I can remember George has always been King in my house. My momma raised me listening to him and at 7 years old I could sing every song he had out word for word. Hate it that he is done with the road but blessed that I got the privilege to see him multiple times over the years. Thanks Ma, for the greatest birthday present of all 7th birthday and my first George concert! Amarillo by Mornin still makes the hair on my arms and neck stand up and The Cowboy Rides Away makes me tear up every time. Long live the KING!

  63. Haidelyn Melano

    i like this song

  64. Jose Roberto Almeida Valente

    Sou técnico em agropecuária, e, apesar de sentir mais prazer com a música Clássica, ouço muito as músicas Sertanejas das ótimas duplas Brasileiras!
    Gosto muito do Gênero!
    Quando ouvi pela primeira vez Allan Jackson, George Strait,... a música Country passou a ocupar o segundo lugar em minhas preferências.
    Sempre que posso, estou assistindo à um Vídeo, ou ouvindo uma ótima música Sertaneja ou Country!
    José Roberto A. Valente,
    Belém do Pará, Brasil!

  65. Donna Gillenwater

    Love you George, You will always be remembered and your music will live in the hearts all over this world. You have touched many people with your songs and I'm one of them. I own a lot of your albums and one song I have always treasured by you was I'm carrying your love with me. That was the song my Daughter told me to listen to when she had leukemia and I nor she will ever forget that one. You are KING of country music and you will always be. We Love you Babe.

  66. Janie Carlson

    Wow where do I begin? I have loved you from the first song you sang and I'm pretty sure I will be a fan until your last. Thank you George for being there when I was alone. My husband use to work the evening shift and every Friday night I would put your records on and I would feel like you were there with me. I have grown old with you. I think we both look pretty darn good! Like a true fan if you keep recording them then I will keep buying them. Love you George!

  67. hartiganlogan

    No words will ever say what he has done for country music. He is nicknamed King George for no reason. We will miss you George more then you miss walking out on that stage thank you for giving us amazing music to turn to when we needed it.

  68. fish1648

  69. j osborne

    I have been in love with George since 1981...that was the first time I ever heard him sing!! I will always love "The King" and this song gives me chills when I hear it, it is like he is talking directly to all who adore him...I shall be saddened when he does leave the stage but I will have his music forever...Thanks for posting this song.

  70. JonasBrosBeyond3000

    This song has me in tears!!! OMG, I've never been much of a Country fan until this year, and I really love it. George has some amazing songs. I couldn't imagine what this song means to the fans who have been supporting GS since the 80's! :) I wasn't born untiil 1991, but I wish I could have recognized the beauty of Country music long before 2011!

  71. Delia Solis

    I have been to many many of your concerts here in Houston and every time it felt as if I was the only one in the room and you were sing to me. I love you GS

  72. Delia Solis

    OMG George I will always remember you. You pulled me through a lot of tough times.
